Well.... Here we go again...! I have been on so many medications its hard to keep track. I was taken off of Methtextrate shots(due to extreme nausea, liver pain, yellow eyes, bruising,) and started on Imuran, of course that in addition to my Prednisone that I have been on last 3 and half years straight now. Any one else have any suggestions, advice, experience, or just a hug!!!!:skeptical: This is soo old! I want refund or just exchange on this crap!!:grumpy: Hugs luv every1 Kathy

hey katroach, i hope the Imuran works for you....i have seen where a few people here have taken it. What schedule are you on for taking Imuran? Is it an every day dosage? Hope you have a great weekend.

Hi Kathy,

All I can offer right now, is a big gentle HUG.

I was on imuran and i felt better but it screwed my blood counts up pretty bad and had to go off them. Now i was just started on methotrexate about a month ago plus i take plaquinel and prednisone for over two years. I wish there was only one thing that you had to take to keep this under control and none of the side affects. Bonita

let's keep our fingers crossed that the new drug, benlysta, gets approved by fda, that it really works, that side effects aren't too bad, and that it is affordable.....that is a lot to wish for, but what do we have to loose.

I take 3/day and it seems to be helping for now. I am starting to get common colds now. My wife had the h1n1 last year for like 3 weeks and she wanted me to sleep in another room so I would not get it. I told her no way and I did not even get a sniffle!!! My imune system must have been really jacked up!
