I've been on remicaid for as long as I can remember, has anyone heard of any long term side effects that would sway my decisions to up my dosage or to change the frequency of my treatments?
Truely Remicaid is the only drug that seems to work for me, Entocourt helps out but it is not as effective as remicaid.  I am concerned about flooding my system with the drug without knowing the future consequences.  Right now I'm going through a bit of a rough patch and my gastro' has recommended an increase in dose.
