so i went to see my GI yesterday and we have decided that Remicade is not working to the extent it should. After 2 double doses 8 weeks apart, i'm still just getting 4 and a half weeks symptom free. I had an accident saturday night which helped us move on. Shame i did enjoy my remicaide time. So i'm having one last remmi infusion whilst we sort out paperwork (i'm in uk so its all applying to PCT). I'd like to hearf rom people who've been on humira? Especially people in uk, cos i'm still waiting to hear back about actual details on it!
Hope everone is well and the toilet paper is soft!

I started Humira a week ago.  Some improvement.  I was going about 10 times a day, with severe cramping.  Now it is more like 5 with less cramping.  It's only been a week.  I hope to see continued improvement.  No side effects at all.
