Loneylane, or Carol,,, You are a God send to me,,,now I can sleep tonight . Knowing you went off Asacol calmed my fears and I'll tell my son you did fine. Also, you said you slowly went off your Pred. He hasn't taken that in a while but he does take 6MP now...3 a day...maybe he'll be weaned off of that too. I think (and hope) that the fact that none of the drugs that they gave my son every bothered him in any way. No side affects,, and to top it off, he smokes. I know that as a kid growing up and now as an adult, he never got sick with anything. While the rest of us would be sick, he'd just walk by and be fine. Not even a cold. Until this colitis hit him. But he still doesn't get flus or colds etc. So you and him must have similiar constitutions that you can deal with this Remicade with no affects.. (so far) Can't wait for him to see the doctor tomorrow. He has to get a flu shot too soon. Thanks again.
