During my last hospital stay, my doctor told me that if my current meds didn't get the job done then I would be headed for Remicade or Humira. I've heard some things in this forum about side effects, can you give me some specifics?
Also, these meds are both given via infusion, correct?
Just trying to understand what may be ahead of me...
