My GI doctor thinks its time to stop Remicade. They are switching me to Humiria. I don't have a date when I am going to switch. I hope it works good for me.

Always good to try new things,, right?? Hope it does the trick and your insurance pays for it.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Hope the Humira does the trick for you and you are able to stay in remission.  Sending good thoughts and prayers your way.
