i was diagnosed with auto immune desease about 3 years now, and taking imuran. I hate medication, although I know sometimes you must take it, but I was reading side effects of imuran....I alway have metallic taste in my mouth and itchy skin or scalp. Drives me nuts. When I was diagnosed, I was told I have schlorisis (spelling?) of the liver. Frightening. However, I feel healthy, don't really have any problems other than that which I just mentioned...but I hate taking medicine. Was looking on Internet for all side effects and that, in itself, is a bit scary. Cancer, cancer, cancer. I would love to come of the imuran, but I suspect that is not a go. I have to go back to USA for complete checkup and blood work to see how I m doing, but I wanted to talk to others who are going through the same thing. You would think they would be able to clome up with something that would stop our own cells from destroying good cells. Anyway, I have enjoyed reading all comments...it helps to know how others are coping. I guess I will continue with imuran .....at least till I see doctor. Thanks to all for being informative. Good luck to everyone.

Apart from an initial hiccup, which with the benefit of hindsight probably was not caused by the Azathiprine, I have had no problems.
However this discussion forum shows that other people do experience a variety of side effects, some of which sound very unpleasant. The discussions also suggest that any side effects disappear quickly once you stop the Azapriothine.
The conclusion therefore seems to be to try it and see what happens. There's nothing to lose, and much to gain if it helps your condition without side effects.
