I was wondering what the maximum dose of Imuran was for UC?
I am currently on 175mg daily (increased from 150mg approx 6 weeks ago). My doctor mentioned we have room to move to 200mg, but I did not get to ask what happens if that does work?
Each time we increase I feel sick...nauseous,tired etc for a couple of weeks. My blood comes back "fine"...whatever that means however, I always look pale.
I have been reading the forum for a while now and its great to hear everyone's advice, as it really does help, but I would like to hear from others who might be on the same level of meds or who have been at this level and how they have progressed.
Even though I was diagnosed last year in August, I believe I may have had UC for years..I only truly realised something was definitely wrong when I had bleeding. I was putting up with bad gas and strange stools for years. I thought it wasn't anything to truly worry about until the blood appeared.
