About Azathioprine

What is azathioprine?

Azathioprine is an immunosuppressive drug that helps the body to stop attacking itself in the instance of some autoimmune diseases and after organ transplants. It works by inhibiting the synthesis of DNA by blocking the production of adenine and guanine, two nucleobases that are necessary for the creation of DNA. Rapidly proliferating cells such as lymphocytes (T cells and B cells) are most affected by this medication. By stopping or slowing the production of antibodies created by the immune system, azathioprine aids the patient in recovery by stopping the body from rejected new organs or tissues. This mechanism of action is the same for those with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and Crohn’s disease, among others.

How do I take azathioprine?

Azathioprine comes as a pill to be taken orally with a glass of water. The size and frequency of your dosage will depend on your condition. Follow instructions given to you by your doctor. To treat patients who are receiving transplants, dosage will often begin before the procedure. To treat rheumatoid arthritis, your doctor will usually start you on a small dose of 1mg of azathioprine and slowly increase it over time. It may take up to 12 weeks to notice a change. This medication will control your arthritis but not cure it. After your condition has been controlled, you doctor may decrease your dose again to keep maintenance therapy at the lowest possible dosage.

What if I forget to take a dose of azathioprine?

Take the missed dose of azathioprine as soon as you remember it. If it’s almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue on your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose of azathioprine to make up for a missed one.

What happens if I overdose on azathioprine?

Signs of overdose on azathioprine include immediate reactions of vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea. Later signs include bleeding, infection, bone marrow depletion, and death. If you think you or someone you know has overdosed on azathioprine, contact the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222.

  • You have a bone marrow disease or TPMT deficiency.

What are the possible side effects of taking azathioprine?

If you experience signs of infection, have severe vomiting or diarrhea, dark urine, clay-colored stools, white sores in or around your mouth, fever, rapid heart rate, pain in your upper abdomen, or you experience weight loss, easy bruising or bleeding, or a burning sensation when you urinate, contact your doctor at once.
