Hi all,
I have been taking Imuran since May 2007, and was curious if anyone who has been taking this drug had bruised easily as time went on. I found one site about bruising being a side effect then I found another that didn't mention it. I'm confused. This past week I moved children's furniture around in my classroom and didn't get any bruises from it, but the next day I got a weird bruise on my arm. Don't even know where I got it from.
Any help, suggestions is greatly appreciated.

This happens to me on my immuno suppressants due to a low platelet count.  I also heal very very very slowly.

On health talk they have some great resources that are objective regarding different UC treatment options. You may want to look through their site and see if you can't find on Imuran for UC.
