I am gona take my 4th infusion of Remicade in a couple of days, I have had no side effects from it and it seems to be working for me symptom wise, I will have a scan in a couple of days to see if it has improved my inflammation or not. I hope it works for you.

Previous Meds: Prednisone, Pentasa. Meds did not work apparently and inflammation became more extensive so I had to start on the current meds.
Current Meds: Remicade (done 1 infusion) and Azathioprine 125 mg. Have been symptom free for 2 months even before the Remicade and Azathioprine.
Trying to eat natural foods, avoiding red meat, dairy, spicy, fried foods and refined sugar. Interested in trying to figure out if there is a way to get off medicines and achieve/maintain remission with diet.
