I can't remember if I posted this already - my Remicaide stopped working - apparently I developed antibodies to it and it's not even in my bloodstream after a few weeks.  My dr is putting me on Humira this week and I am on 55 mg of prednisone. 
6mp stopped working for me too, or never worked in the first place.  If after the Remicaide the Humira doesn't work, what do people normally do?

I had the same issue with Remicade - after 2 years on it. I switched to Humira and actually responded great to it. Lasted another 2 years on that. I so hope it works for you!

After Humira, we tried Cimzia. I didn't seem to respond to it so after 3 months we gave up and I opted for surgery. I then went on 60mg Pred while waiting on the surgery date. That didn't help much either. However, once they started the surgery they saw that I was too far gone for any medication to help. So, the Cimzia might have helped if I wasn't at that point of no return - you know?

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

what was the surgery?  What does too far gone mean if you don't mind my asking?
Thank you for the reply! :)

I too was on remicade and it quit working after 4 months.  My gastro calls me an unreasonable patient, because at this point nothing is working. I've been diagnosed for 6 years now and I hate all of it....
