RatedAzathioprinefor Ulcerative ColitisReport

Total duration after official diagnosis of ulcerative collitis 3 years. It took about a year for diagnosis. My treatment started with 5-ASA and Prednisolone. The symptoms (bleeding and acute stomach pain) were controlled. After 6 months of stopping Prednisolone, started bleeding again. The treatment was changed to Azathioprine 100mg twice a day + Balsalazide 2.1gms thrice a day + Sulphasalazine 500mg suppository once a day. Condition is very much under control in this combination. Changing Sulphasalazine dosage from everyday to every other day (so that I would eventually stop using it) led to bleeding. So the above combination is my treatment since about a year - year and half. Don't plan to change the treatment in near future. The gastroenterologist has asked me to continue the treatment for minimum 3 more years.

RatedAzathioprinefor Systemic Lupus ErythematosusReport

I started taking Imuran(Azathioprine)when my Platlits had dropped down to about 12,000. A normal for platlits is 150,000 to 400,000 mine had been rangeing in the 375,000 area, I also had to take large doses of Prednisone for a few months till my Platlits came back up to a safe enough range, they now stay about 90,000 range , Idon't know if it is all or in part to the Imuran, but I do know that almost two yrs ago I had a pretty big scare, thinking I was going to start to hemorage for no reason, and the Imuran helped bring that range back up to at least a safe enough range, I don't really want to see what my life would b like without the Imuran.

RatedAzathioprinefor Atopic DermatitisReport

This medication has changed my life. My eczema was so severe that the slightest irritation would set it off. The itch would be so intense that it felt like it was emanating from deep within my bones. Hypersensitivity to heat and sun caused me to stay indoors wearing socks and gloves most of the time to prevent scratching. After taking azathiaprine for a few months, my skin was pretty much cleared up for the first time in well over 10 years! I felt like I had a whole new lease on life. While my dermatologist is adamant that the azathioprine had nothing to do with my two bouts of Alopecia (95% hair loss both times) in the past two years, I can't help but wonder if there is any connection betwen the two. Nevertheless, I have chosen to continue with this treatment because it has dramatically improved my quality of life.
