Pancreatitis, unfortunately, is at the top of adverse reactions to Imuran. I also had pancreatitis with Imuran at 7 weeks; caught it early, though, and was not hospitalized. Hope you are feeling much better now from the pancreatitis. What meds will you be starting in its place?

would you mind sharing what your symptoms were ?

My daughter is having some new and worsening symptoms and started Imuran one month ago, and I am concerned that this may be a possibility.

thanks !

While I had no problems with Imuran, I know that there are others in this forum that have found they were allergic to Imuran. I believe that one of the posters ended up switching to Humira and did well on that medication.
