I started mercaptopurine a little over two weeks ago. Blood test came back as liver ok but last three nights now been having extreme gas both burping and farting - after about an hour of this I am vomiting bile and dry heaves . Anyone know if this is normal ?

I will be starting the 6mp pill soon.
I will see what happens for me I guess.
Are you taking the 6mp pill with another medication ? Mine will be accompanied by Humira injections.
Take Care. 🌷
Some people develop pancreatitis from Mercaptopurine and Azathioprine; are you experiencing any abdominal pain? I would let your GI know what’s going on. They might want to check your pancreatic enzyme levels. Hope you feel better soon.
