 3  Auto Immune Hepatitis Fatigue, joint and muscle aches, hair loss It seems to be keeping my liver tests and labs normal. I hate to complain about the side effects that are affecting me, the doctors blow it off and say that's the immunosuppressant that makes you feel that way. I'm so tired of hearing that. F 54 6 months

 2  ITP Extreme joint and muscle weakness. Wake up each morning with a different body part affected. Thankfully no nausea or vomiting. Platelets are dropping with the reduction of prednisone. Back down to 35,000. Haematologist says it is probably the azithiaprine. Weening off prednisone now at 2.5mg a day. At least I could walk when on that. I've been referred to a surgeon now to remove my spleen. Still undecided of this treatment. F 50 2 months

 3  Crohns Nausea, Lethargy/weakness, bloating, weight gain (probably because my intestines were starting to absorb food again), minor hair loss My NP put me on this after I begged her not to make me go on remicade infusions.

 4  Crohns colitis Nausea to begin with ( taking at night combats this). A K lesions due to sun exposure after 12 years ( easily treated) which may or may not be connected to azathioprine. Recurrent anemia which was thought to be down to asymptomatic underlying Crohn's however when taken off drug crohns symptoms returned full throttle without any sign of aneamia. Worked well with infliximab to kick me into remission for well over a decade until my consultant unfortunately took me off the drug. Could live a very full active life which continued to improve year on year with no sign I had a chronic illness M 36 16 years

 4  Autoimmune Diseases elevated liver enzymes, moderate thrombocytopenia, mild macrocytic anemia This drug has been effective at treating multiple autoimmune diseases at once for me. It's been stopped a few times, but I would start to get really ill whenever that was done. I started to develop some toxicity after many years and take it at a lower dose with allopurinol now. It's a little dangerous, but if you need it, then you do. F 34 10 years

 5  Autoimmune Hepatitis Hair loss,weight gain and in the morning or after sitting for a long time (2 hours) my feet and ankles are stiff. I have been on this drug twice before but it was 25mg. With Allopurinol. That worked great with no side effects except it could could cause bone loss. Was taken off but had a flare up so new Dr put me on just Imuran. Working great. I don't like the side effects but I would rather be bald and fat than dead. F 70 9 months

 2  Interstitial Pneumonia Pulmonary Nausea/heaves/sinus drainage/mouth sores/sore throat/hoarseness/week body/very week and extremely painful legs 1st week started at 50mg just felt nervous and had shakes inside and out,, 2nd week at 100mg I got a terrible cold extreme head drainage and sweating constantly. Then when I start the 3rd week at 150mg is when the worst came about. Vomiting with extreme heaves, loose bowels, and weakness. Dr. cut me back to 100mg. Tried that side effects still the same. Dr. cut me back to 50mg daily. One week later I wake up to use the bathroom and could barely walk. Urinating has become painful. Husband got me the walker. Had that from a previous surgery. Trying to stand was very painful and very difficult. I had a fever of 100.2 which lasted all day. I got the chills often shaking terribly. In other words this med is playing havoc with me. I'm afraid to start it again. F 68 21 days

IMURAN  (AZATHIOPRINE):  Azathioprine is used to prevent organ rejection in people who have received a kidney transplant. It is usually taken along with other medications to allow your new kidney to function normally. Azathioprine is also used to treat rheumatoid arthritis. In this condition, the body's defense system (immune system) attacks healthy joints. Azathioprine belongs to a class of drugs known as immunosuppressants. It works by weakening the immune system to help your body accept the new kidney as if it were your own (in the case of an organ transplant) or to prevent further damage to your joints (in the case of rheumatoid arthritis). Talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of azathioprine, especially when used in children and young adults.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
