I was on azathioprine for quite awhile and it helped me get off/stay off the prednisone and did seem to help. The only reason I'm not taking it right now is I have no insurance until next month and I didn't want to be on it without being under a doctor's supervision since you're supposed to get routine bloodwork done to watch for abnormal changes.
