Well, lots of meds don't work for me, including Prednisone and Colazol. And, sometimes I just seem to feel better than others. Sometimes I don't feel like a have UC for a couple days here and there. On Remicade I had about
3 months that I was pretty near remission. Now that you have committed to taking Remicade, you need to remain on it, even if you are feeling better. You might feel like you don't have UC, that is great that you feel that well. But if you were diagnosed with it because of results of a colonoscopy, you really probably do have it and are in remission and need to keep doing what you're doing to stay that way. It's good to hear someone doing so well.
