I've never taken remicade before but am on humira, and it seems to be working pretty well. I've been eating chocolate caramel tiramisu from macaroni grill(though I swear today's has to be my last since it so unhealthy for anyone), and I feel completely normal. I have to attribute some of that to my other medications as well, but I truly believe humira is making a difference.
From what I understand about remicade you have to go in to get the infusion which I can understand why some people might prefer it, but I like having my humira pens at home so I can just do one quick injection every two weeks and be done with it. Plus, my insurance for it is wonderful so I end up paying $35 for two pens. Of course that won't last forever because it is under my father's military insurance so I can't say how great the price of humira is without that just yet. We'll see I suppose.
