Hi, I have been tapering off pred for about
6 weeks now and been taking Azathioprine 100mg for 9 weeks. Last week I felt the best I have in about
1 year and thought for sure the Azathioprine was working. Last Sunday I came down from 10mg to 5mg started to feel a bit unwell BM's loser on the Thursday and Friday however my period also started on Friday and today Saturday BM's not good at all which has instantly freaked me out. Do you think my period has anything to do with it or just coincidence. Obviously I am praying it will settle down in next couple days as I don't want to have to up pred again (my hair is falling out at an alarming rate!).
