about 2yrs ago I started Remicade.  Every 4 weeks  (which worked for 2weeks then tapered off), ......now I am on Cimzia which i have been on for about 1yr.  Recently we combined Imuran......my questions is this:  How many have left Remicade then went back?  Cimzia just does not seem to be doing the trick.  My only other option is Humira.............???
any insight???

I was on Remicade for 2 years and I had to go off of it because of insurance. I'll be honest I couldn't tell a difference between taking it and not taking it. I am now on Imuran and allopurenol I had to have a right hemi colectomy and now in remission good luck to you :)

anybody else have any insight.......I guess my biggest questing is would you guys recomend going back on Remicade....??  With Remicade I could get 2 solid weeks of being symptom free, since I added the Imuran I was thinking it may be even better.  Or just try Humira??  Like I said the Cimzia has never really done the trick for me.
Thanks for the advice!!
