Does anyone know for positive how long it takes Imuran to leave your system? I have read/heard conflicting information on it. My doctor says it only takes 2 weeks, and while I trust his opinions on things completely, I have read that it takes anywhere from a minumum of 8 weeks to 6 months!
My doc wants me to come off Imuran 2 weeks before delivery so that I can breastfeed, but if that isn't long enough, I dont want the baby to be exposed to it and leave him/her immunocompromised.
Thanks for the help!
