It can take up to five infusions for Remicade to work, so don't worry yet. I didn't get any better with my first 3 infusions so I scheduled for surgery. But then my c-scope showed that everything was healed but the last few centimeters, so the key was to find the right combo of rectal meds.
There are sooooo many probiotics! I'm using VSL #3 DS, which is by prescript
ion and has research to prove that it helps with IBS and UC. It's the only probiotic that has actually helped (albeit slightly).
