Hi, i was diagnosed with Crohns just over a year ago. My bowel was in a pretty bad way. After a routine colonoscopy, i was admitted for a bowel salvage. Was prescribed steroids and infliximab infusions. All of this has been fine and has managed to get me into remission. However, i am also on azathioprine which seems to have awful side effects for me. On the recent advice from my ibd nurse i stopped this medication for a couple of weeks and felt great! However, when i try to reintroduce it i feel terrible within a couple of days. Sore throats, feeling hot, phlemg. Just generally feeling horrible and have now for the last four months. I want to stop this drug urgently. I am scared of the risks and its making me really paranoid! Had anyone experienced a similar thing? Thanks.
