I have been taking Imuran for about
3 years now and it put me in a solid remission for very quickly. I did my research and found that it has been around for a long time and has a lot of research behind it. I haven't had any problems while being on it. Also I started on 200 mg and lowered it to 150 mg and now take 100 mg. My last colonoscopy and flex showed a completely healed colon. I asked my Gi doc about
the safety of it and he said he is unaware of anyone having a serious problem with it. It either usually works or it doesen't. People know that very quickly.
