Just to clarify, Many patients and even some doctors believe that some of the medications cause hair loss. However, there have been very legitimate studies showing, that about 90 to 100 days after inflammation (elevated crp,fcp,esr...).patients begin to lose copious amounts of hair. Many doctors will mistakenly withdraw the medication as hair loss is not something patients are willing to deal with. Occasionally, some medications can cause hair loss but usually it is due to the inflammation (chemotherapy). However, if you had brown urine with Imuran then it is not a wise idea. The tests for antibodies and absorption are both good idea. Also, you can try steroids with each infusing to help prevent antibodies. Good luck.
