Question: Stop medication?


I have cut down on my medication from 120mg to 50mg of imuran a day. i have dont this for 7 months and have never felt better. Would it ever be possible to not take any medication? I have had moderate crohns for the past 9 years. Flaring up only twice.

Anything is possible, but stopping any medication has both benefits and risks. To undertand the consequences of both continuing Imuran or stopping it, this discussion should be had with your gastroenterologist.
