I've been on Humera for almost 2-yrs now. It's just now loosing it's "oomph". My GI doc keeps telling me she's going to up the dosing from every other week to every week. Been on Prednisone since April and have been on Imuran for several years. Have also been off and on the Entocort several times over the past 2-years. I'm afraid that one day I'll have been on everything and nothing will work anymore. At any rate, if I remember correctly, the Humera took a good 6-months before I started noticing that it was helping. I wish you all good luck with the Humera. I haven't done the Remicade yet. Sounds like I probably shouldn't waste the time or money huh?
Diagnosed 13+ years ago.
Been in remission for short periods of time but each time I come out of remission my disease seems to have spread. No longer isolated in my ileum, now from stomach down to rectum.
Current Medications for the Crohns: Humera 40mg injections every other week, Imuran 150mg, Levsin, Welchol 625mg, Prednisone 10mg(started weaning off, now going back up in dosing).Canesa suppositories, Calcium, Acidophilus & Potassium
Previous Medications I've been on: Asocal, Pentasa, Flagyl, Cipro & Entocort
Misc: I recently joined a local crohns disease support group that meets monthly. It has been great talking to and meeting other people who share the same disease. I hope to continue gaining insight through this forum as well.
