I have split with Aza after 5 years together!

Last night I said goodbye to Azathioprine after spending 5 years together. We have definitely had our ups and downs over the years, but Aza was just not giving me enough.

There has been a new.... medication in my life for the last 6 months, infliximab, and so far we are going strong, so far so good. So its time for me and Aza to go our separate ways!

All jokes aside, it kinda does feel like I'm saying goodbye to an old friend! Its strange. So I just have to hope now I continue to feel OK without aza so I can move on with just infliximab!

Best of luck to you on the infliximab. I hope it leads a long, boring relationship with remission
