My daughter stayed on 6mp, and added Remicade. She had a 4th infusion yesterday, and it was a double dose( 10 mgs per kg. No great news either way. I understand there are some increased risks-logical since the meds are big drugs with lots of implications, but that some doc's find that they work better in combination than alone. We are not doing well enough to eliminate anything, but if we were to improve, the 6mp would be reduced.
Daughter,15 diagnosed 1-08 w/ UC .
