good question, I would like to know too. I have had a cold now for 2 weeks, just a small cold and it has gotten considerably better. I was waking up really stuffy in my nose and head and congested and a little phlegm. It has mostly gone away. I was worried it might turn into something worse b/c of being on the azathioprine.
