Urinary Burning

I have been suffering from burning upon urination for more than 2 months now. I checked with my GP, and he ordered a urine analysis and culture, but everything was normal. Could it be a side effect of Crohn's meds? I'm currently taking Pentasa and Imuran.

I researched the web and it's mentioned that one of the side effects of Pentasa is urinary burning. But I have been taking it for more than 6 years , how come I'm having this symptom now?

Have you had any remicade infusions, because its also a side effect of that drug too.

I have heard that many side affects appear for no reason at random times. Maybe that is why it just appeared out of nowhere. Good luck.

After six years it could be the drugs.
You may have to change your meds.

Wishing you well~Nancy
