I can't make up my mind. about 2 weeks ago, I was feeling horrible and I had an appt with my GI. He prescribed me 6MP and told me to start taking it right away along with my Humira since the Humira didnt seem to be helping... so I picked up my prescription, but that weekend I was so busy and I had to take Humira on Sunday so I decided to wait a few days till starting 6MP. Well since then I am happy to say I am doing pretty well. I haven't started the 6MP yet. The only bad thing is that my hair is starting to fall out a lot. Sooo, should I still start the 6MP or wait? What would you do? The GI said it takes 3 months for 6MP to kick in... Also I have heard taking it with Humira decreases risk of a reaction, but raises risks of Lymphoma.
