Hi everyone,

After months of steroids, the liquid diet and a disastrous stint on pentasa I've been given the go ahead to start azathioprine at last.

I know people who have taken it for years and have been absolutely fine, but I would appreciate any tips or pointers to look out for before I start it tomorrow!

Thanks in advance! IMG_5319.JPG

Welcome. I would ask your doctor to check your blood regularly. I hope it helps you.
