I've been on remicade since March and have seen no improvement. I started off at every 8 weeks but i'm now at every 4 weeks. I have an appointment with my GI on Nov 13 and am thinking about asking him to switch me to Humira. Luckily i'm on the Remicade assistance program so I don't have to pay for it. Does anybody know if there is a similar program for Humira. all I know is i've had CD for almost 10 years and have never been in remission. I just deal with the pain and try to live as normal of a life as I can. It kinda sucks cuz I have a 2 yr old daughter and a 3 mo old son and if i'm having a bad day i can't even play with them. I have tryed all sorts of medicine and haven't been able to find the right combo for me. Also my GI is kind of limited with what he can prescribe me since i don't have any insurance. I did just start a new job so hopefully i can make it through the probationary period and get on their plan.
Sorry if this post is kind of long and thanks for having such a great website, it has helped me a whole lot.
