Hi folks, I'm new to this forum but thought I'd chip in.
I was prescribed azathioprine in January this year. I initally felt quite nauseous after taking the tablets, however some anti-sickness tablets that my GP prescribed me really helped. I also felt quite tired as well. However, after short while, I ceased to feel this way.
This week my GI increased my dose and thus far, I have experienced no side-effects.
I guess over time I will see how effective it proves to be for me.
