Remicade has been approved for CD much longer than Humira. Therefore, we have had more members try Remicade. The majority have had few or minimal side effects to Remicade. Many have had great success inmproving their quality of life while on Remicade. My gut went into remission after the third infusion. Humira is receiving great reviews here from our members. Few have reported major side effects.
While your insurance will cover both, make sure you check what the co-pay for the Humira will be. Because Remicade is given as a medical treatment, co-pays are generally lower for some. My GI had a patient switch from Remicade to Humira just for convenience but her co-pays for the Humira were so high she went back on Remicade.
I had an occasional drink while on both Remicade and Humira.
