  • after starting the Imuran and being on it for about 3 weeks I had flu-like symptoms went to the doctor was tested, the test came back negative for the flu so unsure if I really had the flu or if just a reaction to medications. Had read the Imuran can cause flu-like symptoms but after 4 - 5 days with those symptoms I no longer have that problem and it's been 1 month.
