I do not have Hep C but my 57 year old father just passed from it. I'm trying to learn more about the side effects. He was never "sick" from this until he died from varices that burst. Wondering if this drug caused it. Thank you.
I have been on Imuran for 2-yrs this month, it is my life saver, my emyzmes were sky high, and I was headed to a possible liver transplant. The predesone made my sugar go up, and I began insulin (8units), but am now at the point of not needing the insulin. My doctor will reevaluate and no more pins/needles.

With Imuran my emyzmes are now stable, my heptologist visits are now every 6-month.
