Well i have been back for my 3 monthly check up with the rhuemy today and he has decided that I am having way too many flare ups and that I can't stay on steroids as i am too young ( I am 40 so i think i might take that as a complement to cheer myself up) and so has put me on azathioprine.
He has told me can have bad side effects but unless i am being violently sick to carry on with it. I am to have weekly blood tests, he has warned me it will mess up my INR, and to be honest I am not a happy bunny. I really didn't want to venture down this road, my rheumy has been putting the inevitable off for about 9 months, but apparently enough is enough.
I just wondered how everyone else has faired on azathioprine
