Yes. A few days after the infusion I was not having any of those symptoms and it has stayed that way. I do however have some centralized abdominal pain but they have not been able to find what actually is causing it.

Currently taking: started Humira 07.13.10
Recently tried 6MP and developed pancreatitis
Allergic to mesalamines
Developed antibodies to Remicade after 1 year
