I stayed on imuran until some recent studies showed that the slightly increased incidence of certain types of cancer with Remi appears to be primarily for people who are on both Remi and Imuran. At that point, my GI gave me the option. Since I didn't feel the Imuran was doing much for me anyway, I chose to discontinue it. This was about
a year and a half after I started the Remicade.
