    Default imuran

    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.

    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
