I have been getting the Remicaid infusions for about four years, and now it seems to be failing. I am so afraid Crohn's is taking over I just had my infusion less than two weeks ago and I am seeing blood again from my bottom. It is to soon for me to have the next infusion, its not till may 7th. I am not sure what to do. I am planning to call my GI guy Monday and ask if I can try Humira, I am getting desperate. I feel that each passing day I have fewer and fewer hours in the day that I feel good. I know that I have to do something, has anyone changed from Remicaid to Humira and had good results? My pain level has increased and my abdomen feels swollen. I know it's not a blockage as I know how that feels, it feels inflamed inside and I have been so nausious lately, I can't go on like this. I just passed up a wedding invitation today as I fear going and getting sick, it's making me crazy. Also my pain management is slipping and I am back to counting the hours until I can take my pain meds. this is so messed up. I just can't go through the tests that might await me if I open up this can of worms again.

My daughter changed from Remicade to Humira and has had very good results.

Please go see your GI doc as soon as possible. You could be developing antibodies to the Remicade but he/she will have to assess things.

Good luck.
