Have any of you switched to a different medication if Remicade stops working for you? My GI increased my dosage of Imuran to 175 mg and said prior to doing that he could increase the Remicade as well. He also mentioned Humira? I get Remicade every 8 weeks right now and for about 3 weeks prior to having it I have abdominal cramping and pain that is tolerable for now (i.e I can function} I had Remicade this past Saturday and I seem to be having more cramping and I hoping that it settles down. Usually after Remciade I feel great but not this time. I have my next appt. October 3 so I let my GI know. The pain I am having right now is to the right of my navel and I woke up this morning with stronger cramping that usual. I took some Bentyl which took the edge off a little.
