So in another post I asked about Remicade and weight gain. Well, what about the Remicade dosage changing with weight increase? I just passed into the next dosage bracket when I jumped up to 186. My GI said he doesn't want to up the dose since it seems to be working fine and a higher dose may be asking for more danger. But if my weight increases I can see this changing.
So I guess I've entered a vicious cycle.
Bad fissure Feb 2005, still have it January 2006. On Pentasa and Imuran 100mg. Some slight swelling and ulceration of terminal ileum. No other symptoms. Now on Remicade!
