6mp sending liver function test high

Hi just wondered if anyone has been on 6mp and it sent their liver function test over 400 just after one week on this medication. I had another test on 9 January which was 75. I was told this is still high I am awaiting going on humira but cant until liver function has gone back to normal. Does anyone know whats normal?

I know they keep good blood work on people with 6MP. It made my Alk Phos go nuts after a few weeks of being on it. I had to be taken off of 6MP because it elevated my lipase as well.

Did they take you off of it?

Do you know what test it was ALT, AST, Billirubin? I think different tests have different "normal" ranges.
