LDN and Imuran Combo Diary

Jack's inflammation levels have been climbing since Aug/Sep. At GI appt. on Monday his doctor added back in Imuran/Allipurinol combo but did not want him to come off the LDN since it had worked so well.

He took his first dose on Tuesday morning, no immediate issues so far. He upped the dosage of Imuran from previous as weight in June 2012, the last time he was on Imuran was 75lbs and at that time he took 75mg of Imuran and 100mg of Allipurinol. New dosage is 100mg of Imuran and 100mg of Allipurinol since his current weight is 93lbs. He will continue the 4.5mg of LDN but stop the Pentasa.

Blood tests in 3-4 weeks to check levels. We also have MRI scheduled on Friday to look for inflammation, stricturing/thickening in bowel walls of small intestine.

No other symptoms present except for lack of appetite and no growth along with raised inflammation on fecal calprotectin. Blood labs all within normal ranges. Currently has 1 solid BM/day, very minor fatigue (maybe normal for 14 y.o. boy), color is good, no abdominal pain.

Since the question is often asked if LDN can be taken with other meds. I thought I would start a thread to let others know our experience.
