Imuran Information

reviewed by Dr. HaVy Ngo, Pharmacist on 2/16/2024 10:14:15 AM.

Imuran Details (Brand and Generic) offers the brand Imuran from Turkey and New Zealand by GSK and Canada by Aspen. The generic Azathioprine comes from Canada by a different manufacturer. Our customers may also purchase other Immunosuppressive agents such as Florinef and Taltz.


The brand Imuran and the generic Azathioprine are both available in the strength of 25 mg and 50 mg tablets.


Imuran (Azathioprine) is a prescription medication used to treat certain autoimmune conditions such as dermatomyositis, systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus), inflammatory bowel disease, vasculitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions. Azathioprine belongs to a class of drugs called immunosuppressants. This medication works by decreasing the activity of your body's immune system. For rheumatoid arthritis, this medication keeps your immune system from attacking and damaging your joints. For a kidney transplant, it keeps your immune system from attacking the newly transplanted kidney.

Side Effects and Precautions

Stop using the medication and get medical care if you have an allergic reaction. Signs of an allergic reaction may include difficulty breathing, hives (rash on your body), swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat—If you experience any of these symptoms, please call 911 or seek emergency medical care at the nearest emergency room (ER).

The common Imuran side effects may include diarrhea, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting. The serious side effects may include:
• Cold/numbness in the fingers;
