Me! I started it (off-label approved by insurance) after failing (literally) every drug marketed for Crohn's (except methylprednisolone). Within a couple of months my inflammation (CRP and ESR) dropped in half and by 3-4 months all labs are within normal range! It's been a miracle drug for me. Super easy shot, supposed to be given by healthcare pro. No sting, no anything.
I do notice my immune system is suppressed. I don't seem to get more colds, or take longer to get over them, but I did catch an outbreak of shingles before it happened, so now I take anti-virals daily. Only other side effect is that I bruise VERY easily. I'd take bruising and anti-virals over bad Crohn's any day!!!!
