First, it's SUPER frustrating that a med that is suppose to make you not have diarrhea, gives you diarrhea. How long does this side effect usually last? Does it go away once your body gets used to the med?
I think this Imuran is giving me diarrhea and making everything black in the whole 4 days I've been using it. The remicade was making it sorta semi-soft serve, but now it's mostly water again. I don't have much of the other side effects, but I have bad allergies, so I don't think I could tell the difference anyway. A lot of that pain is gone, so I guess I'm good with that, but it still takes about 30 min of sitting there to let everything move through, and I can feel it creeping through there. Really freaky actually.
