I submitted a simular post here too, I feel I am also feeling that Remicaid is becoming less effective as I have pushed the infusions closer and closer. Now I am on a 5 week cycle, and I also see blood and the other signs that the crohns is just there waiting to flare. I go Tuesday for my next infusion, only because I requested it sooner because I feel so bad, I do not want the crohns to get out of control. I will be asking some questions while I am there to, maybey I can try something else. I will be following any posts here also. I hope things improve.
I just had symptoms more and more - I was in pain, bleeding, couldn't eat, etc. It was almost like I wasn't getting any medication at all.
After a few months, I started to react. My throat swelled up, turned red, heart raced. Stopping the med and giving Benadyl stopped it, then we slooooooooowely restarted and it took hours.
After my first hospital stay, my GI told me he thought I had built antibodies to it - thus, the flare I was now in and the reaction.
So, we tried Humira. It worked immediately. I wish I had taken the symptoms more seriously months prior instead of waiting until I had to spend 2 weeks in the hospital.
