Recently the remicade hasn't been working as well as it did. Has anyone had this problem and then switched to humira? If so what were the results? Also, does anyone know how soon it will be approved for U.C.

I am looking into that now.  My GI doc didn't act like it would be a problem with my health insurance to switch me.  Remicade is quickly loosing effectiveness with me.  But I am going to hold on to the Remi as long as I can.  I don't want to be on the LAST drug available before surgery.  It makes me feel better knowing that I have one more medicine I can try.

Diagnosed Pancolitis 5/05.
Hospitalized 2/08 Severe Flare
Hospitalized 3/06 Severe Flare
Remicade - every 8 weeks
Imuran - 100 mg per day
Asacol - 9 pills per day
