I know there are a lot of people on here that are on Remicade but for me, it's not a drug I want to take. My GI from the Cleveland Clinic put it to me like this...this disease won't kill you so why would you want to take a drug that can kill you?" I know the cancer risk with Remicade is rare but I'm way too scared to risk it.
Have you tried immunosuppressants, what about
steroid enemas? All traditional UC meds make me worse (like Asacol, Colozal, Rowasa, etc). The doctors have a hard time believing that they make me worse (because they don't like to listen!). If you aren't comfortable with Remicade, there are other options. If your doctor keeps bringing it up you might need to switch doctors.
