When I was diagnosed the second time with Crohns colitis I had remicade at the recommended intervals and went into remission (I think I had a total of 4 treatments) and then My GI doc said to start on 6 mp instead, which I did, and about
a year later I stopped all together. I only had one flare since when I was pregnant and got it under control with 6mp again but stopped taking it once I felt good again before the baby was born. I haven't taken any meds since. To make a long story short, I had no side effects from the remicade other than what the other posted said about
being tired the day you get it. I really think it is was kicked me into remission.
