An Introduction to Side Effects of AzasanJust like any medicine, Azasan® (azathioprine) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the drug will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
