I forgot to take my Imuran dose last night.  I take 125 mg every evening for my UC and just realized this morning that I forgot to take it last night.  Anyone know if I should just skip or should I take last night's does this morning?  I'm going to check their website as well, but thought I'd check w/you guys too.

I think it says on the package that you can skip the dose and take your regular dosing the next day. If I'm not mistaken, one missed dosed shouldn't cause any harm.

That's correct.  If there's a med I forget to take, it's Imuran, and missing one dose has never bothered me. Just take the next dose tonight.
