I'm not currently taking 6mp, but took it for about 2 years between 2004 and 2006. I tapered off of prednisone while on 6mp. I took 9 colozal tablets daily and used Canasa daily while on 6MP. It took over 3 months for the drug to start working for me (about 5 months really). I had a monthly blood test while on 6MP. I also started Remicade in December 2005 while on 6MP, as my symptoms didn't improve enough for me. After I was on Remicade for about 9 months I had to stop taking 6MP. I had nausea for the first few months of taking 6mp, but took it at night so as to reduce the nausea. I think fatigue was also my biggest complaint while on 6MP. That being said, for many patients it does the job and works very well. Every patient is different.
