What determines my proper dose of Imuran to treat multiple sclerosis?

ANSWER

Your white blood cell count and your weight will determine your prescribed dose of Imuran. Your starting dose will be low and slowly increase over time. Imuran is generally taken once or twice a day. It is available in 50 mg. tablets, which may be easily broken in half if necessary.

Your prescription label tells you how much to take at each dose and how often to take it -- follow these instructions carefully and ask your pharmacist or doctor to explain any instructions that you do not understand.

It is important that you take this medication regularly as prescribed; do not stop taking it and do not take more or less of the drug than is prescribed.
