mercaptopurine generic

Since undergoing a bowel resection, I have been taking this medication for a period of 5 years. this generic one about 3 moths works the same but price much cheaper. Remarkably, I have not experienced any pain or side effects during this time. As a precautionary measure, my doctor consistently monitors my blood counts every 3 months, specifically checking for low platelet levels. Fortunately, all the results have been positive, indicating no issues in that regard
