I'm supposed to be on Imuran/6MP right now. My GI told me to start it a couple of weeks ago so I can get off my steroids. However, I've tried the Imuran 3 or 4 times now and it always gives me terrible stomach pain and I have to stop it. However, GI doesn't believe me, he just always says let's try it again. Anyway, I've been pretty good right now, so I'm going to try and get off my steroids one more time before I start this terrible drug.
Does your GI want you on 6MP because the Humira wasn't working at the time or does he want you on it as a double team?
I think you should at least talk to your GI again. You don't always have to listen to them (wish I could follow my own advice). It's your body, if you're not comfortable with something then that should be your choice.
