Thanks for writing in.

Anabolic steroids are immunosuppressive as well as azathioprine given for crohn's disease.

As both are immunosuppressive, these drugs will potentiate each others action. But as immune system is suppressed; chances of infection are high, along with osteoporosis, or weakening of the bones.

I would recommend you to consult your treating physician and explain him/her regarding doses of steroids you are taking.

I hope I have answered your query. In case of other doubt, I shall be happy to help you.
Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
