Hi, currently taking 200mg daily of azathioprine for treating my ulcerative colitis (pancolitis). 6 months so far.
Been having a lot of gas/cramps for last month or so and last couple of weeks seeing some mucus, only going between 1-2 times a day. BM’s constantly changing between constipation and loose.
I’ve now started seeing blood for the past 7 days, red, covering BM.
My question is, does this mean Imuran isn’t working or are occasional flares with blood and mucus that may require pred. normal from time to time?
Worried I may be moved onto the next step or drugs.
Recent blood work said calprotectin 100 and negative for c diff on stool test.
