It's a myth that you can never go back on Remi after stopping it. However, it's a chance you take because about half the people who try it find they either have developed an allergic response or antibodies which make it ineffective. You seem to be one of the lucky ones who didn't. Congratulations!

Diagnosed in 2001, finally in remission since March 2006.

Remicade has been my miracle drug.

Exactly, episodic use (which is how I have infliximab/remicade) is essentially stopping and starting - I've had breaks of up to 3 years between infusions. However I am on methotrexate as well and this reduces the risks of developing antibodies during that time, I'm always scared when I have an infusion though!! Thats great your back on it and its making a difference, I swear I'd be dead or almost there if it wasn't for infliximab.
