I just had my third infusion of Remicade the week before Xmas and I don't feel like it has helped at all. I feel like I did before the Remicade started. I am thinking that already, the Remicade isn't working on me. This is one of my problems is that no drugs seem to work for me. I have a bad reaction to most drugs.
Here is my question. I see my GI tomorrow. If he takes me off the Remicade I know he is going to want to try Humira. I am actually very nervous about Humira because of the shooting myself and the darn sting it gives. I was wondering would Cimzia be better to try then Humira. I don't mind the IV's as I do that now with Remicade. Has anyone taken both Cimzia and Humira and which would you recommend. I may also ask about LDN but I don't know if my doc will know enough about it.
I am just feeling anxious about this visit as I am getting really frustrated with no drugs working on me. I have thought about clinical trials but that is a short term not long term solution.
