Remicade worked wonders for me, however I stopped taking it becasue I didn't want to be on it permanently.
I took 3 infusions of Remicade and then stopped. I went without UC drugs for about a year and then got another flare up. I then took 6MP pills for about a week and the flare up went away. Then I went about a year and a half until another flare up. I again took 6MP pills for about a week and the flare up went away. I again went drug free and it has been a year and a half since any flare ups.
My method is against my doctor's recommendation, but I refuse to be on Remicade full time.
I just want people to know it may be possible to use Remicade temporarily even though doctors may not recommend this.
FYI - Prednisone and other anti-inflammatory drugs did nothing for me.
