Has anyone taken Azathioprine? What was your experience with benefit and side effects? My rheumy said it's a chemo type med similar to methotrexate. I can't take mtx due to RA involvement in lungs. I haven't started it yet as she said just 1/2 pill makes most people sick and I haven't had time for down time if it's necessary. Thanks in advance for your input.
This is kind of gross but, ever since I started Methotrexate I get blood clots when I blow my nose and occasional nose bleeds. I’ve never had a nose bleed or clots prior to this medication. Anyone else have this issue?
