A description of the experience
Tioguanine, also known as thioguanine or 6-thioguanine (6-TG) is a medication used to treat a number of types of leukemia. It has been used less frequently in recent years because of safety concerns. However, it is becoming more widely used for treating ulcerative colitis and some autoimmune diseases.
- Leukopenia and neutropenia
- Nausea and vomiting
- Hepatotoxicity: this manifests as:
Hepatic veno-occlusive disease and nodular regenerative hyperplasia
The major concern that has inhibited the use of thioguanine has been VOD and its histological precursor NRH. The incidence of NRH with thioguanine was reported as between 33-76%. The risk of ensuing VOD is serious and frequently irreversible so this side effect has been a major concern.
On Feb, 11, 2016: 725 people reported to have side effects when taking Thioguanine. Among them, 6 people (0.83%) have Hallucination.
Time on Thioguanine when people have Hallucination :
|< 1 month||1 - 6 months||6 - 12 months||1 - 2 years||2 - 5 years||5 - 10 years||10+ years|
