Remi can put you in remission, or help contoling your simptoms. May it helps delaying your flares or stop them at all. No "one size fits all" at all!
For me, it took about 6 months of treatment to get the full effect of the drug. I'm happy with it, in a good remission (I would give it an 8 in the Artistguy scale).
For alergic reaction I take 200ml of hydrocorticoids some minutes before my infusion. No problems until now...
