I'm not on Imuran, but on 6MP. The GI doctor bumped up my dosage to 75 mgm, but I started to feel lethargic, not sure if it was due to the 6MP, but I went back down to 50 mgm. No side effects except I noticed my hair is thinning out. I have to have blood counts drawn every month. Last month it was ok. Today I had blood drawn again. Have to wait till I see the doc on the 15th for the results.
