Hello
After biopsy and so many drugs your treating doctor advised AZORAN 100 mg .
Your question is there any side effect of AZORAN i.e. AZATHIOPRINE is an immunosuppressants and its side effect are in detail for your information, these are:
Fever, chills , bone marrow depression characterized by leucopenia, thrombocytopenia or anemia , anorexia , nausea, diarrhea, arthralgia, secondary infections, hepatotoxicity , rash , alopecia, myelosuppression, mutagenicity & carcinogenecity, veno-occlusive liver disease.
These are side effects but before any decision consult your treating doctor because sometimes we can ignore side effects as if benefits are more .
Hope this will help you.
Good luck.
