Ulcerative Colitis - Mercaptopurine

Postby AngieNorm1971 » Tue Oct 10, 2017 12:53 pm

Hi

I have been on prednisolone for 6 months with has had no affect at all so I have now been prescribed Mercaptopurine but my TMPT level is quite low at 15 and having read all the side effect of this drug I am just wondering if anyone else is taking it and how they feel being on it? TIA

I was on this Mercaptopurine but before that azathioprine both made me feel very nauseous and heady so stopped taking them. Not sure what they are going to try on me next :cry:
