I have been on Remicade since it first came out in 1999 and just recently had to come off of it.
I was steriod dependent in 1999 and Remicade helped me stay off the steriods and gave me a lot of help. In fact I never had to have a surgery until now.
The only reason why I had to come off the Remicade was because I have a history of MS in my family and recently developed some neurological problems that prompted me to see a neurologist that ordered some tests for me.
They found lesions on my brain that are very consistent with MS so I had to come off the Remicade immediately.
Since off the Remicade in August I developed 2 bad flare ups and have to have surgery.
Remicade was a wonderful drug for me that also helped my arthritis tremendously.
I wish you the same success!
