I was just wondering if anyone who was on Imuran for almost a year and a half and the doctor told them to stop taking right away if they had symptoms of any kind. Bonita

hi bonita,

i take methotrexate, not imuran so i can't answer your question. I do know with mtx, they really watch my liver with weekly/monthly blood work. Is this the same for imuran....did dr. say why to stop?

sorry you find yourself in yet another dilemna, hope someone can answer your questions.

Yes he stopped it because my white and red blood counts are low. The last blood work i had done since being off he says got a little better but not my enemia.

I have been on imuran for the past 6 years and my doctor stopped it because it is not working. I have been put on methotrexate and prednisone.

He told me that might be the next med is methotrexate but i am scared to take that one. Do you have any side affects from it? Bonita
