I don't know how to answer your question well, but I do have a question.... Did your doctor tell you the reason as to why he doesn't want you on both at the same time? I was on Humira and Imuran together for about a year and a half. I'm thinking that he may not want you on both because of immuno suppressors, but I was on both and had no problems at all, I even work in child care and carried on like normal. If that's the case, I hope you can use this as a help to you to get you on the imuran to help you gain remission. Both those drugs helped me get into remission and has kept me there since being off the Imuran. It's a good drug, but.... yeah. Good luck.
I have recently had my second flare of UC and my GI has prescribed Imuran.
I also work in child care and when I read about
what this drug does to your immune system, I started to think I would have to give up the career that i love so much.
Reading your story here, has given me hope!!
So I really can continue my job in childcare and survive the effets of Imuran???
Glad to hear you feel more positive about
this. I've had my ups and downs too due to the same concerns, but I've kept remission for 2 years but had 1 small flare last year.
