I have a teenager with UC that is on Remicade (last infusion just 2 weeks ago) and appears to be possibly starting to flare.  Bad pain, and mild (so far) stool issues.  We have stool studies to do.  I am just wondering of those of you that have been on Remicade if you flared, how badly and how long did they last.  Also, what got them under control.  I am very nervous as this is pretty much the end of the medication road.  It has worked a miracle up until now but it has only been 5 months!

I've been on Remicade for about a year now. I've only had minor problems towards the end of my treatment period. Remicade has been wonderful to me. When is the next treatment?

meds: UC diagnosed 1990; Remicade - 1 year, Canasa suppositories as needed, vitamins and other supplements
Severe reaction to 6MP; Severe nausea and steady unwanted weight loss on Asacol
