I am on my 4th week of taking 75mg of azathiporine for Ulcerative Colitis. I have that read that many suffer side-effects which include nausea & vomiting but so far I have not experinced this. I am having weekly blood tests to monitor my bone marrow levels a dose of prednisolone is tapering down & should be at nil in 4 weeks which will make 8 weeks for the azathioprine to have bed in.
The main side effect I am beginning to experience is extreme fatigue. I am presently taking the 75mg in the morning along w/ the steroids but I have heard that some people take the azathiporine at night & that this can aleviate some fatigue symptoms. Does anyone else have any experience of this & whether this can help? Does the fatigue go away or is this something I will just have to get used to?
I have also wondered about a ginseng or eleuthero (Siberian ginseng) supplement to help.
Any help / insight any of you might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated.
