Turns out my Remicade is no longer working for me even though I have not built up any antibodies to it. Does anyone know what biologic is next when Remicade is no longer affective? I know there is no exact science but what do people here normally move onto when they need to change biologics from Remicade? I am not doing any steroids or assist meds like imuran etc.
I'm in an active flare and thanks to C-diff from antibiotics I took for a sinus/ear infection its worse. Vancomycin is wicked on the body and my Crohn's flare has knocked me out. I just got a yeast infection thanks to this antibiotic so yay. Living on 4 capfuls of miralax and being terrified of my own body thanks to C-diff has been just crushing to my self-esteem. I live with bleach dousing everything and I swear have become OCD from it. God, going through a flare and C-diff has made me look at how fragile our bodies are with Crohn's disease. I know anyone can get C-diff but jeez it just feels like its one illness after another.
