Remicade was my wonder drug when I was fistulizing. I agreed to it before I had too much time to doubt my choice, and never looked back. Now I've been through Humira, and currently Cimzia.... still no regrets, but wishing I could find something that worked as well for me as the Remicade did. I'm a bit sick of biologics, and they are apparently sick of me too. If I were fistulizing again though - I wouldn't hesitate to give Remicade another try. For me, nothing was worse than the fistulas and abscesses.
