I've been in perfect remission for 3 years and just got my Remicade infusion on 4-17. The entire week after the infusion I was starting to have more frequent and less dense stools for the first time in forever, which really scared me. I was so scared remicade had stopped working..But today I had a pretty good stool and its the only one so far, which kinda alleviates my worries :) Small victory I hope.

Anyways my question is, lets say the remicade had stopped working or....god forbid today I end up on the pot again, that remicade IS no longer working, I've only heard of humira as another regimen of meds. Anything else out there (aside from 6mp, imuran, pred - conventional doesn't work on me).

One of the other newer meds is called Cimzia. You might want to check that one out too. Good luck!
