Starting Remicade this week. My doc was not keen to start. He prefer to slowly increase the MP6 medication + pred from the bottom up rather than jump to the big gun.
Currently on 100mg/day of MP6 + 40mg/day Pred. Doc advise to increase the MP6 to max for my body weight and give it a try.
Does increasing MP6 to max will help? I had been on 75mg MP6 for over 3 months and 100mg for almost 2 months now. I still have no relief yet. I had almost given up hope on this.
Anybody think I should give it more time with the max dose?
I read so many sucessful stories how Remicade had help so many crohn's patient to gain remission and lead a normal life that I like to give it a try.
Need some advise what precaution should I take before the infusion?
I know there is high risk using Remicade. My biggest problem is I have pulmonary spasm of the heart. But this condition is well control by medication. Am I suitable for Remicade?
