My UC started slow and then came on real strong causing me to lose 50lbs in 3 months. Nothing worked except Remicade. I was having at least 10 BM's per day. After my first infusion of Remicade I noticed a huge improvement 2 days later. In fact, I was back to normal after 3 days. That's how well it worked for me.
Diagnosed April 2005.
Took Prednisone and other anti-inflammatory drugs to no avail.
Remicade July 2005 worked wonders. 3 infusions only. None since October 2005.
No daily drugs. Only 6MP pills if I have a flare up which has only occurred twice since stopping Remicade.
