FYI - I have UC and have been 100% with remicaid for the last 2 years.  The dosage was 5mg per 1kg body weight and I went every 8 weeks.  All of a sudden it stopped working.  So...my options are to up the remicaid to 10mg/1kg or try humira.  I decided to go with the higher remicaid still every 8 weeks.  I can't get it for another 4 weeks so I am trying to hang in there with cortememas nightly.  I will keep people updated on this because I know this higher dosage is not that common apparently.  But has anybody had experience with this?
Steve - I still need to update my profile

Hi, I am taking the higher doses of Remicade, haven't noticed any difference in the lower "normal " dose and the higher one, I've been on remicade since June 08, I haven't had any problems since with my crohns since, my dr automatically increased the dose after a while for me, don't know why I wasn't having any problems, guess since I was so bad in the beginning.  Hope this helps!
