My 2 cents: don't get frustrated if it doesn't work right away and find the right cocktail of meds. It took me 4-5 infusions and the right combo of rectal meds to finally reach remission. I almost had surgery, but luckily my c-scope showed I was healed except for the last few cm.
The only complaint I have is that Remicade is preventing my body from healing my cold sores. I'm pretty sure I've never had cold sores before, but now they're almost continuous even while on anti-virals. And I'm also experiencing hair loss, which could be from any of my meds. But other than that, I'm happy to use Remicade to keep me in remission!
