My son was 13 when he went on Remicade and has been on it for about
one year now with no problems. I can tell you that there are plenty of people your son's age or younger on Remicade. The dragonpack website is a terrific resource for parents of kids with IBD. The address is http://www.dragonpack.com/ibdsupport/parents/
Where in New York are you located? I'm in upstate near Rochester.
Please ask if you have any additional questions about Remicade or general questions about having a child with IBD. My son was 11 when he was diagnosed.
