for me, the biggest thing has been fatigue, I take all my azathioprine (generic of Imuran) at night and that has helped. I used to go to bed around 10:30pm now I go to bed around 8:30 or 9pm. I do exercise about
5 days a week and I find that has helped keep my energy up.
my past three labs have shown my liver enzymes are slightly elevated, not so much they want to take me off but enough so that I am doing monthly blood work instead of every 3 mos. I will be going over w/GI soon.
