Off 6-MP now with two months supply to give or throw away

I had surgery over a year ago and am now on Humira. My doc took me off 6-MP but I'm left with a 2 month supply. They were filled in September and October 2011. I have not opened the containers or touched them. Since I understand what it's like to pay for this out of pockets, it seems like a waste to throw them away. I will send them to an uninsured forum member for free. Please contact me.

Did 6-mp help you gain weight? I am going to be put on imuran after my next surgery. I would like to try 6-mp though if it can help with weight gain.

6-mp will not help you gain weight. The only one I know is prednisone, and you need a pretty high prolonged does, which is not a good idea if not medically necessary.

I am in the USA and am not willing to send internationally, sorry. I don't want to get in trouble.

Is there an organization that takes extra unused meds if open?

I"ve never heard of one, and I'd be surprised if it existed, lots of liability.

I know they have bins for HIV meds for drop off. Seen them but maybe it's for sealed.
