Some people on this forum have tried Humira after Remicade...but it has not been approved to treat UC yet, but some people can still get it. Remicade just did not make a difference for me. I saw some changes after my first two infusions, but by my third and fourth there was nothing. So my fifth came just four weeks after my fourth just as a last chance effort to get me through until my surgery, which was two week ago this Friday. : )
Your GI should really be the one discussing options with you. Each doctor is different with his/her beliefs and practices. They may have some additional tricks of their sleeve, but normally if someone fails the level of medications such as Remicade surgery is the next step. I do hope you can find another option if surgery is not something you're considering.
Good luck to you!
