Long term 6-MP side effects

I have been taking 6-MP (75mg a day) for about 18+ years for Crohn's Disease. I had most of my colon removed in 1996 and had recurrent disease at the anastomosis site. Anyone else taking this drug in the long term and experiencing side effects like abdominal pain / discomfort, numbness and or tingling in the feet or depression? I have not found much info on long term use of this drug.

Hey Steve, did you get any answers? I've just started in Aza and assume it's for life. At the mo I'm just cincentrating on getting well so I can hopefully get pregnant so haven't given much thought to the long term problems. Would love to know any deed back that you got,
Thanks, Maighréad.
