Hi Red,
 
What kind of symptoms did you lessen by taking your Imuran at night?  I am going to change to night.
 
I have been on and off so much stuff, I don't know what side effect is from what.  Mostly I feel weak and out of it, not able to really concentrate like normally (besides the flare and muscle pain from the pred).  I think that may be from the flare though, just being tired.  But I have been sleeping better this past week.
 
Thanks!
Beth

In the beginning, my symptoms were increased fatigue, headache, and slight nausea. When I started taking it at night all of it eased or became nonexistant. Also too I had mild hair loss but I have thick hair anyway so I didn't notice it that much. After about 2 or 3 weeks of being on it, the side effects became unnoticable.

I also started taking Imuran at night instead of the morning because it made me tired during the day.  That ended for the most part once I started taking it at night.

thanks, maybe that is why I have been so tired this past week even though I have been sleeping better. It would make sense!!

I have fine hair but have a lot of it, so I hope if I do get hair loss it wont be noticeable on me either.
