Ulcerative Colitis - Mercaptopurine

Post by AngieNorm1971 » Tue Oct 10, 2017 12:53 pm


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:

Ulcerative Colitis Mercaptopurine

Hi all- I just had a hysterectomy for treatment of stage 1a1 microinvasive endocervical adenocarcinoma and my doctor has mentioned several times that my ulcerative colitis could have played a part in my diagnosis. I also have HPV. He has mentioned that the immune suppression could be causing the HPV and the UC and that the constant inflammation from the UC could have been a factor in the cervical cancer. Has anyone else had this convo or have any experience with UC and cervical cancer?

I’m wondering what other tissues Could be effected by the same factors.
