This is my opinion; PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't get off the Remicade! PLEASE! I would give anything to be doing as well as you. I had a reaction to Remicade and stopped it, I was like, cool, this yoga and new diet is keeping me ok. What a slap in the face! I am VERY SICK now, 3 months since my last remicade infusion. I am struggling with my insurance to try to start Humira, in the meantime, I am so sick I am hardly ever leaving the house. I am getting desperate enough to try prednisone with remicade or anything I can to get back to only flaring twice a week as opposed to now, flaring about 6 days a week. What if you get off the Remicade and you need it again and have a reaction and the Humira doesn't work for you?
