For most people, 6MP has less side effects than Prednisone. But if you're nauseated all the time, It may not be better for you. Since you're going to have insurance in less than two months, Pred might keep you under control until then. When your insurance takes effect, try to get back on 5-ASA's and do consider rectal meds also.
