  1. Re: Imuran (Azathioprine) and Sun Exposure - How Careful Are You?

    Actually working f/t now. Began about a mos. back. Takes some getting used to. Haven't decided whether it's harder due to age or laziness. Hoping you're good as well, misb! - David
  2. Re: Imuran (Azathioprine) and Sun Exposure - How Careful Are You?

    Does your dermatologist know that you take Aza? What I had on my fingers was not raised but flat, and each was a little larger than a pencil eraser's circumference. Appreciate the info, drz. - David
  3. Imuran (Azathioprine) and Sun Exposure - How Careful Are You?

    Have been on it (as I've mentioned) approx. 8 yrs. Down to 25 mg/day - although 2 yrs back (unbeknownst to doc) I began only taking every other day/3 times a wk. Someone on the forum suggested I...

    Re: Imuran (Azathioprine) Users:

    I will check with my doc, Woz, re Imuran dosages. And maybe I shouldn't wait for my fall appt.
    I was never at 100mg. Believe 50mg was my highest. That's so strange to me that you could go 9 mos....

    Imuran (Azathioprine) Users:

    I may have asked a similar Q before.

    I have been on Imuran for 7-8 years. I'm supposed to take 25mg/day and have held at this dosage for a few years. I'd like to get off it all together. Doc wants...
  8. Re: PYGEUM for prostate: Have you used it (men only)?

    Was taking Flo - then doc added Finasteride on a whim w/out saying why (they often go together I've been told). Took them for maybe 3 months. Wanted to find a more natural way. Never heard of Pygeum...
  9. PYGEUM for prostate: Have you used it (men only)?

    I know this is a Weg's forum, again, but couldn't find another forum off-hand. For many it's a wonder drug. My whole reason for taking was to eliminate my getting up at night (I have counted as many...

    gilders: the fatigue is indirectly related, right? the cpap's purpose being to give one better, more restful sleep.

    Re: Rectal Prostate Exam Yields Finding

    Doc has put me on Flomax (1, 500mg cap). It has a side effect I don't care for so much. You may know it if you're on it. Told by another doc he still feels it's the best choice for most out of what's...

    The clinic I attend is issuing a sleep study for me. Almost hope it shows sleep apnea. At least it would be an answer.

    Re: A Tiredness Upon Waking And At Night:

    Arlerta, do to an enlarged prostate, I'm up anyway a few times every night for a few years! It's just been the last month. Leaving library now. Till next time.
  16. Re: A Question My Kidney Doc Has Never Asked Me!:

    Pete, it's gotta automatically be better - right? That's all I'm saying. I'm just surprised. Leaving the library now. Till next time.
  17. A Question My Kidney Doc Has Never Asked Me!:

    Never in 7 years has he ever mentioned making sure I drink filtered water. Isn't that sort of strange? Wouldn't drinking from a "Brita" (for example) be a better thing? I have all along even so....

    A Tiredness Upon Waking And At Night:

    My recent testing didn't show anemia. Iron wasn't checked. Someone also suggested thyroid. After looking up symptoms though, I don't really see a correlation.
    It's been about a good month now where...

    Re: Rectal Prostate Exam Yields Finding

    The PSA was "ok" in that it was 2.2. Waiting to see the doc again to go over testing. I'm not worried about this reading, but I know a rechecking of the prostate will be a part of things from here on...

    Rectal Prostate Exam Yields Finding

    Doctor sent me for bloodwork. Don't know anything just yet. Doc said it might be something caused by Wegs, which maybe would make it a "false-positive" so to speak, which I'm guessing would be a...
