I was diagnosed with Crohn's Colitis in May this year during a severe flare up. I was put on Prednisolone for 8 weeks during which the symptoms stabilized and am still free of them now.
As a preventative measure I was put on Azathioprine qui t e recently. All was well until day 8 when I came down with flu-like symptoms. Fever aching dreadful lethargy as well as sickness.
I stopped the Azathioprine but agreed to try it again after speaking with the IBD support nurse.
After a break of 5 days I restarted and had a similar reaction 2 hours after taking the tablets. This time all the same symptoms plus diahorrea. I stopped taking the Azathioprine and symptoms subsided within 24 hours.
I am seeing my specialist in next 2 weeks and wonder what might be tried next.
Has anyone had similar experiences with Azathioprine?
