Remicade is my miracle drug. I have had three infusions and was able to wean totally off my steroids. I went into treatment (remi) not expecting to feel better. I actually didn't notice it for about a week. I had significantly less abdominal pain and less bloating. I didn't feel great, but I felt good. Then I had my second treatment and that helped with the joint pain. I had my third treatment and was feeling great. Unfortunately, my joint pain is back, but after three remi's I have minial stomach discomfort and I feeling better. I have other issues going on, so my depression has kicked up. Good luck with it. I feel that remicade is the drug that saved my life, mentally and physically.
