I went to see my GI doctor yesterday and she planned to put me on Methotrexate or Remicade. (I had tried Imuran before but I couldn't tolerate it. So, my maintenance medication is Salofalk tablets which don't really help.)
I won't consider Remicade yet because of the cost and risks.
Is anyone taking Methotrexate for UC and how do you feel about it?
