Oh dear! I'm so sorry to hear that you are almost bedbound and I do hope azathioprine will help.
I've not taken it myself (I'm on methotrexate and hydroxychloroquine) but I've found some old threads where it's mentioned by people taking it. http://tinyurl.com/y8ua5qp7
I hope that helps a little but please join us on other threads and other forums. I'd guess that most of us with an autoimmune form of arthritis have had really bad times such as the one you're going through and it does help to talk to people who understaND.
Hello and welcome Evie
Sorry to hear you are in pain and having adverse effects from medication already tried, it must be very difficult and frustrating for you. You have come to the right place for support!
I have not heard of that type of medication but did find this.https://www.arthritisresearchuk.org/arthritis-information/drugs/azathioprine.aspx
which might help.
hi - its been around for a long time apparently but feel nervous about it - 2 days in and ok so far (fingers crossed) - double knee replacement due but blood pressure and heart investigations holding this up - hey ho!
I am sure that someone on the site will have either heard of it or experienced it.
Our help line is also a source of support and help perhaps a conversation using the above number.
