I just had a colonoscopy last week (5th one since dx).  My gastro told my husband that he thinks he wants to try me on humira because of ups and downs on remicade.  It works a bit then doesn't.  It is not a steady drug for me.  I just wanted to know if anyone else made the switch and what others think about the humira?
Any input would be appreciated!

All I have is bragging about this drug! This drug is a miracle drug for me. It's a pain to give yourself shots every other week, but it's totally worth it. It put me in remission so fast, and have been in remission since about May or June of 2007. :)
