I have had U/C for 15 years, with several bad flareups. Asacol and prednisone did nothing to help, but after 6 months on Imuran I got my first clean colonoscopy in 15 years. I can run without flareups for the first time in more than five years. The only side effect I've noticed is some slight joint pain in my hips, but that could also be my 50 year old body after a long run!
