sorry to be welcoming you and your daughter, it is so scary going through all of this. You have a found a great site.
With side effects, I got kidney disease from taking sulfasalazine which is a B class drug and I am one of the rare people to have that happen to........also pred side effects are pretty nasty. So I guess what I am trying to say is that you can can side effects from taking anything, so try to hope for the best. Remicade has been great for a lot of people and it may be my next step (sooner than I think).
Wishing your daughter and family the best.
