Sorry about your daughter. I was 15 when I was diagnosed with left-sided UC. I started out with all the weaker drugs. I have never tried Methotrexate, my GI said he wouldn't give it to me because it is dangerous to the liver. I have taken Remicade, it took me almost a year for my diarrhea to settle down. How long did your daughter try Remicade? Right now I am on Humira which is working fairly well. When I was first diagnosed, the Rowasa enemas worked pretty well for me.
