Like Fran says, everyone with Lupus reacts differently. I assume they are considering Imuran because Cellcept isn't working for you, which is a reasonable change. The three meds they generally try first are Imuran, Cellcept and MTX.
I was on Imuran for several months without any side effects (if I recall correctly, listed side effects for Imuran are less toxic than Cellcept ones.)
Generally Drs don't change meds for no reason, so if you need to question their reasoning, do so, but overall I suggest following the Dr's (rheumys) advice.
