I searched this question on the site and couldn't find anyone who had this problem. The main problem for most on this drug is low levels of thioguanine nucleotide (6-TGN).
I have been on 6-mp for about a year and a half and doing well. However a recent blood test revealed the opposite problem - high levels of 6-TGN - (1301) which is well over the therapeutic amount, and could be toxic. My doctor has lowered my dose back to 50mg of 6-mp, and we will see if that makes a difference.
Has anyone had this high 6-TGN problem? It seems that I could simply keep decreasing the amount of 6-mp until I am within the right level of 6-TGN?
