But I did sort through my gargantuan pile of unwanted drugs, in order to return them to the pharmacy from whence they came. Here they all are:
The Evil mercaptapurine ((6MP). Now, I kept the information leaflet for this one (I know, I'm mental). It says: "This belongs to a group of medicines called cytotoxins (also called chemotherapy)." Yep. Chemotherapy. Bloody Hell. No wonder 1 dose made me ill. In the 'What is this drug use for' section it only mentions leukaemia. Nothing else. That is serious stuff.
The only-slightly-less Evil Azathioprine. This one took just over two weeks to put me back in hospital. Ahhh, a week in the MASU behind A&E... lovely. I haven't kept the info leaflet for this one, although I'm pretty sure it at least mentioned IBD's as diseases treatable by this stuff. I'm told they don't use it in the States any more though. They go straight to 6MP. Erk.
Anyway, back they all go. Wonder what they do with them?
