    Azathioprine and bright urine?

    Hi there, wondering if anyone can shed some light on this! A few hours after I first took Azathioprine I noticed my urine was a bright yellow, almost like a highlighter pen or something. I did a search on here and found a couple of posts saying this was normal and assumed it was probably just...

    What happens if you take too much Azathioprine?

    Feel a bit silly with this but here goes!

    Prednisone heart rate anxiety

    Hi there, first post here so apologies for it being a plea for help! Unfortunately my doctor is booked up for the next couple of days at least so I'm hoping for a bit of reassurance. I've been on Prednisone for suspected Crohn's since February starting on 40mg and tapering 5mg per week. Today's...
