What dose were you on? Obviously its better to be on it than not, but if the side effects were too much to handle than you have no choice. Good luck!
I started on 100mg per day, but the side effects were horrible so my doctor knocked me down to 50mg and then was going to go back to 100mg but split up (one in am on in pm) but I had horrible nausea to the point where if I sat down I was better, but if I tried to move I would throw up. Projectile vomiting a few days in a row, extreme exhaustion, dizziness. It was horrible. I didn't eat anything yesterday because I wasn't even hungry, but when I tried to have a couple bites of something I felt like throwing up. Imuran just isn't for me.
