I had a terrible reaction while on Remicade, after my second treatment, and had to discontinue it. Then about
a year later I asked my GI about
Humira, he had never treated a patient with Humira yet, but agreed to let me be his guinea pig. It has made a world of difference in how I feel, how I look, and my quality of life has improved sooo much. Now, I will tell you that I still have to take 3 to 6mg of Entocort daily also. But the combination of the Humira and the Entocort has reduced my D from a dozen times per day to about
twice a day, the abdominal cramping has drastically reduced also. I have gained about
12lbs in the past few months because I can finally eat food and it stays in me...haha. My latest colonoscopy showed that most of my ulcers in colon have healed and the inflammation is under control.
I highly recommend giving Humira a try, and if you haven't tried Entocort ask your GI about
Let us know how it goes!
