Ulcerative Colitis - Mercaptopurine

Post by AngieNorm1971 » Tue Oct 10, 2017 12:53 pm

Hi

I have been on <a href="http://www.ulcerativecolitis.org.uk/medications/steroids.htm" target="_blank">prednisolone</a> for 6 months with has had no affect at all so I have now been prescribed Mercaptopurine but my TMPT level is quite low at 15 and having read all the side effect of this drug I am just wondering if anyone else is taking it and how they feel being on it? TIA

I was on this Mercaptopurine but before that <a href="http://www.ulcerativecolitis.org.uk/medications/Azathioprine.htm" target="_blank">azathioprine</a> both made me feel very nauseous and heady so stopped taking them. Not sure what they are going to try on me next :cry:
