I’ve been taking MMF for about 4 years but recently tried switching over to Azothioprine as MMF isn’t safe for pregnancy.
I was ok initially but after about 10 days had severe gastric side effects. No one was sure if it was the azothioprine so since then I’ve stopped taking it and tried reintroducing 3 more times. Each time it makes me sick, the last occasion I only took a 1/4 of the dose as suggested by the lupus nurse but was sick 2 hours later. I can’t get any appointments with my team for another 2 weeks so I was wondering if anyone else had a similar experience & if they had been given any alternative options (from my research online it doesn’t look like there are any).
