I have Auto immune hepatitis aswell and primary biliary cirrosis. I was on Azathioprine for two years but when my blood counts went up and I was to take 50mg morning and night, my body did not react well to the drug, so was put on Mercaptopurine. This was devestating and I started to go to liver failure. I am not on Cellcept which is Mycophenolate Mofetil 1g morning and 1g night. This is a fantastic immunposuppressant. Basically what I am telling you is that at any time your body cannot any longer tolerate one drug, there is always another waiting. The one I am on now is more 'pure' in other words there are less chemicals in in to effect the liver.
It might be worth a mention if you are uncertain but many people are able to tolerate your medication for many years.
If you are on cholesterol meds though, ask if you can come off the statins. I was on atorvastatin which was not helping. Ezetimbe 10mg is just as effective with no side effects. The aim is to have as few toxins as possible.
However, my consultand advised me not to stop drinking coffee, of all things, he said at lease two cups per day as this has scientifically been proven to help prevent cancer in the liver which is important in our case as the nodules that form in the liver with this disease can turn cancerous sometimes.
thanks for your email havent found any one else with this It sounds like you have it worsethan me at the moment the only trouble Im having is with viens popping in my leg havent had that for about two years keep pretty good thanks
