I was just there any reason to lower Imuran dosage while in remission? Or is that pointless b/c it is the Imuran that is keeping me in remission? I was just thinking about random things on my walk today! I see my GI on Wed. for the first time in a few months and was making a list of questions to ask him. Thanks!!

I think for Imuran to work properly it has to be maintained at a certain level in order for it to be effective. To lower it might be rocking the boat because your body isn't getting that stable level it needs for that med. It's a good question though to ask the GI!
