I was under the impression that Imuran was safe to take during pregnancy? That is what my high risk gyno told me. I've read that as well.
Yes, you will lose your remission if you have to come off of your Imuran and prednisone. Those are crucial. I'm very surprised that you are having to come off the pred too. That just doesn't sound right. I'd get a second opinion on all this. It goes against everything that I've been told. "If" I were to get pregnant, I'd be staying on the Imuran and prednisone, but I'd have to change my blood thinner to something else, and that's it. Oh, I'd be on strict bed rest too.
I really think you need another opinion on the medication stuff. I'm sorry you're dealing with this Redrose. I hope it all works out well for you. Please let us know how you're doing okay.
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
