Well, knock on wood I have been on it since Jan 2010 and I feell okay, i don't have any pain at all. i will be able to tell you more at the end of the year when I have another scope. I too was scared to go on any medication harder than Asacol
But when they said my disease was back 10 months after surgery, I said enough is enough and did it. I also looked at all of the side effects Humira could cause and was terrified but I had to weigh the Pro's and Con's and the Pro's won.
If you were on Remicade, the side effects should be very similar to those of Humira. If so I wouldn't worry.
Good luck with your decision.
