It has almost been 3 weeks of me starting 6mp and for the past 2 days I have been feeling achy and some what of a sore throat.  Is this normal?
Current Meds:
4 Lialda daily
Rowasa nightly

     I never felt that way Britney.  Perhaps you are coming down with a cold or something.  6MP does lower your white count and makes you more susceptable to infections.  Hope you are getting monthly CBC's done.  My white count dropped to 2.4.  I lowered my dosage of 6MP to 50 mgm one day and 25 the next.  Doc had me on 75 mgm...way too high for me.

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.
