Hi Kelly - I just wanted to drop a line and tell you that I hope you feel better soon. If you aren't happy with your treatment, you can always talk to another GI. I am a bit surprised you were pulled off Imuran only because it takes so long to build up in your system. Perhaps, if you're only off it a few days you can go right back to your earlier dose, but given that it may be making you sick, you may want to go back up on it slowly. I found the hardest part of Imuran was getting on it, and scaling up the dose, so just do that slowly to give your body a chance to adjust.
Hang in there and remember that neither your parents nor your GI know what you're feeling. so you have to do what works for you, even if others think you should be doing something else.
feel better soon.
