wow i havn't been on here for a while but im glad i did today and read about the dosage
I was on Aza for a few months .. went from 25 to 75 but only had a few weeks at 75 before my docs and IBD nurse jumped and told me to stop as i had a liver problem with it .
So i have tried again with mercaptapurine ( 6mp ) and was told to start at 25mg and be very careful not to miss a blood test , which i was as i was doubting there would be much difference between the 2 drugs .
I seem to be fine with 6mp but i had increased to 37.5 ( 3/4 pill ) and then gone to 50mg , all without seeing the consultant ( I got messed around and couldnt get an appt )
but i was wondering about going further to 75mg etc
Now I think i wont !! ... but will wait for the consultants advice /appt
thankyou for posting the dosage information ...i had not read that anywhere , although could have missed it , as i had in my head that it was the same drug but just broken down differently
Is it based on weight too ? ..im very skinny ( 5ft 10 , 60kg ) -
