Azathioprine Dosage

Hi

I am currently on 100mg of Aza and I am fine. I recently gained about 5 KG over a 4 months perioid. Now I see my concsultant in 3 weeks. I am just wondering whether my dosage needs to be altered?

I know it changes with weight etc but Ive just got a bit worried in case its not at a high enough level now I have gained weight?

Thanks

My Support Groups:
If you gained weight, you are probably fine. I would be more concerned if you were losing weight. They would typically check your blood work to see if your dosage needs to be higher or lower.
