Imuran with antifungal medication

I have a pretty persistent toenail fungus that wonít go away with just creams. I went to a local doctor, and he said heíd normally prescribe oral antifungals at this point, but he was worried about the possibility that the antifungals would react badly with the imuran. I asked my GI about it, and he said there was no reason for that to happen, but to be careful anyway.

The toenail thing is just a bit nasty to look at, and doesnít cause any pain. Imuranís kept me in full remission for four years, so Iím worried about doing something that might have a chance of messing with it. Does anyone have experience of mixing antifungals with Imuran, or heard of anyone else who has?

i was on a systemic anti-fungal briefly and I felt it really helped the Crohn's. I'm just on Stelara though. The drugs were itraconazole and voriconazole. They gave me elevated liver enzymes, however, and had to be discontinued.
