I know we've discussed steroid-sparing agents a bit in the past, but I can't recall if anyone has actually tried azathioprine?
RBH have suggested to me that I might like to try it to try to get my steroid dose down, as I'm running into increasing problems with steroid side effects. Methotrexate didn't seem to help me much (and MAY have contributed to me getting two episodes of VAP this year, but who knows!) and I can't take ciclosporin because my blood pressure is too high. I know there is less evidence for the use of azathioprine in asthma than there is for the other two, but I have heard ancedotally that some consultants find it useful.
Obviously I'll be doing some reading, but I wondered if anyone had any personal experience they could share?
