    Default Know anything about this medication?

    Hi friends. Hope you all are well. I think of you often, even if I don't post frequently. Just a question...

    Has anyone been prescribed 6 MP or mercaptapurine? ( I may have spelled this incorrectly.)

    I believe this is a steroid-sparing agent, in the family of chemo drugs. This has been suggested as a possible treatment for some of my SLE-related ailments. I don't like what I'm reading about it. Any info would be helpful.

    Thanks for your replies. I'm wishing you well.

    Hi Jana...

    I don't have experience with this drug so all I can provide you with is what I will find doing a research on the Internet, which you have done already, eh? Or would you like to me to search....I don't mind...

    I also wanted to let you know I read your post, and wanted to wish you wellness, Jana. Hugs....

    Love,
    Oluwa

    Oluwa -

    Thanks so much for your kind reply. I've done some research....ugh! You are so sweet to offer to assist with the research, but I don't think I'll impose upon you today. I've read enough to cure what ails me without taking this nasty drug! Hope you are feeling well.

    I appreciate your thoughtfulness.

    Jana
