My Azathioprine Adventures

azathioprine-falling-sick-and-always-tired-copyIt’s been a while since I threw myself down the Azathioprine rabbit hole, so perhaps it’s time for a quick recap of the ‘fall’ so far.

In a nutshell: finally got a prescription, acted like an ostrich, started meds, felt like shit, got used to meds, bloods went loopy, got taken off meds, 3 weeks of cold turkey, back on meds.  Makes my head spin just thinking about it.  Makes my head spin just thinking about it.

  1. I’ve been on Imuran (Azathioprine) for a while now, the blood an urine tests are annoying an it’s kinda turned me into a bit of a germaphobe… but otherwise been solid. Sucks it hasn’t agreed with you, I’m always nervous getting my numbers hoping they haven’t dropped. Really don’t wanna start over with a new med.

    Hope this round goes better or you get something that does.

    Also I completely agree on the numbers lie (in one of the posts). Doc, I’m feeling a lot more achy and tired than usual… It feels like a flare. “well your numbers are fine… get more rest, no changes to meds” I’m already sleeping 10 hours minimum -_- “maybe you have sleep apnea, consider a sleep study” but why has it never… O never mind. It’s so weird it just cleared up a couple weeks later, apparently cured sleep apnea -_-

    1. Aaddron, thanks for taking the time to read my blog and leave a comment! Fingers crossed the drugs kick in properly at some point. I’m way better than I was last year though, so that’s something! 🙂 x
