I have been on Remicade for 2 years. I was wondering if this is a drug that is usually used long term or just to get someone into remission? I really don't like the thought of having to get a two hour IV every eight weeks for the rest of my life. I have been in remission for about
6 months now. I have one BM a day w/o blood & eat anything I want. I would like to think that I could cut back on some of my meds starting with Remicade.
Asacol 6 tablets twice daily
Remicade every 8 weeks
Folid Acid daily
Methotrexate 3 times a week
