Hi Steve, Just make sure you get you blood checked often. Your doctor should start you out at a very low dose and work your way up. I took it for over a year for uc. I've got off it because I'm trying to have a baby and didn't want to risk it. Like jill said the doses we're taking are much lower. Are you going to take 6-mp or azathioprine. 6-mp did make me feel tired so I switched to azathioprine and it seemed to be alright. You might get colds more often because it lowers you immune system but it's much better than the flares of crohn adn uc. good luck
