ditto on getting your life back - it's been 5 months since he started the Aza - 75 mg and he was on the low end of metabolizing as well - increased to 150 very recently - with monthly blood tests. He is a totally different person. We thank God every day for giving him his life back. The past 4 days have been so totally normal it is kind of scary but it really makes us grateful as the past year and 1/2 was not so nice off and on. More off than on.
