My daughter had her 2nd dose of Remicade yesterday and we met with her GI. The doctor wants to take her off of her 6MP and put her on methotrexate instead, because of the risk of lymphoma when on Remicade and 6MP. The GI says that methotrextate and 6MP both work equally well. Plus, it would give my daughter one less daily medicine, because methotrexate is a weekly med. I tried to do a search on methotrexate on this forum but couldn't find anything. Is anyone else on Methotrexate?
