Hello Rose,

Azathioprine (Imuran) usually starts working within 6-8 weeks with more effect later.

Hopefully the effect from the pulses of cyclophosphamide will carry you through until then.

Maybe someone who has had cyclo can tell you more on that score.

That's good news Rose. My rheumy didn't even try tapering my pred until the imuran had kicked in and, due to other problems, I still take both (though I'm on 12.5mg a day now) so they can be taken together if needed.

I hope you have a good, headache-free holiday.
