Has anyone ever been prescribed Azathioprine/Imuran and Asacol to be used simultaneously? I was given that earlier, but I just wanted to check if anyone else here was given this prescription before.

     I take Colazal and 6MP together.  The meds are very similar.

Update 11/03/08...finally in remission!!  Hope I don't jinx myself.  Off the prednisone since 11/01/08...now see if I can stay off for longer than two weeks.  Other meds: 6MP (75 mgm), colazal (6 per day), Benicar and Toprol (high blood pressure meds), Probiotic (2 per day), fish oil capsule and multi-vitamin and calcium with vitamin D.

Can you tell me how Azathioprine worked on you? Someone here posted that he had problems with bleeding and was given Azathioprine. After 3 months, the bleeding went away.

Azathioprine, lialda (A big Asacol), prednisone, Golimumab. So they definately like to keep adding things on top of each other. I never noticed a difference with the aza, yet I continue to take it for some strange reason.
