What other meds have you tried?
I had Remicade for my psoriasisartritis ( had my crohn then but undiagnosed still) and I had effect from it on the PsAs nearly right away. I felt the "fog" in my brain "drain of" and after a day or two I felt less pain in my joints. Unfortunally my CD didn´t react on it at all. HAd to stop taking Remicade because it triggered my liver into a autoimmune hepatitis
But after treaten that with preds
( terrible medication but sometimes needed) I were put on Humira insted.
They say that if you don´t get the respons you need on Remicade sometimes Humira is better and likewise. That´s why I ask you.
Being so close to your retierment it´s not easy but in my case I had to change jobs to awoid the tremendus stress I was in working there then.
Crohn colitis. AIH triggered by Remicade. Adherensis due to severel gynecological operations.
Meds: chloroquine and Humira. Tested several other medicins but have had sideeffects of many of them like pancreatitis from Imuran. Nausea from metotrexate and so on. Now tested apheresis with good response.
