thats odd cuz methotrexate is in the same family as imuran/azathioprine.
i would believe (as im not a dr and cant say for sure) that they are pretty close to the same thing.
with different names.
like taking mesalazine and pentasa together.
2 lots of immunosuppressants may be a bit of overkill and who knows what the side effects may be.
i would definitely get a 2nd opinion.
steph - 32 - female - gold coast australia - UC since 2000
severe UC in descending colon and sigmoid colon ONLY
mesalazine granules 3g x1 a day (much nicer than a million tablets a day)
prednisolone 25mg x1 a day (ick ick and did i say ick?)
enteric coated fish oil -omega 3 (so they get all the way to my colon)
vitamin D3 x1 a day
tumeric capsules - if i remember to take the bloody things.
i still eat what i want, when i want, if i feel like eating at all :(
