I have Churg-Strauss syndrome and after a year on steroids I relapsed (7.5mg at that point) and after hospitalisation was put on Azathioprine. Not good. I managed 3 weeks but it was at the point where even when I dropped to 50mg of AZA I was being sick for hours on end evey day. So my consultant swappd me to Mycophenalate Mofetil (CellCept) and I have been on it for just under 2 weeks. I feel SO much better than I have felt in forever, but my most recent blood tests showed an elevated ALT serum of 94.
I'm wondering if this is possibly just damage left from the build up of Aza rather than new damage from the CellCept. But I really have no idea how long it takes for Aza to clear out of your system (I understand it is more complicated than just the half life, but I am no chemist).
Anyone know anything about this? I'd really like to avoid changing from a drug that is makng me feel so much better!
