The news tonight said people who used the drugs before the age of 18 I believe. It might have been even younger. My doc has always said that they do not know the long term effects of Remicade and I can't stay on it for too long. Like everyone else I am wondering what the heck I am going to do since they have tried every other medication on me. sad

Maybe more information will be released. My mother takes Enbrel for her arthritis. I wonder if that will be approved for UC. She hasn't had any problems with it but this makes me worried.

If I took mega doses of melatonin, I would either be sleeping all of the time or none of the time! HEHE :)
