Has anyone made the switch from Remicade to Humira? I have been on Remicade for about
3 years. In June of this year I had a scope which showed complete remission for the first time since 2002. I was ecstatic! Since I was doing so well I decided to quit all medication to see if my body could maintiain remission on it's own. I started a gluten free-dairy free diet and really took care of myself. I did well until October when I started to have a pretty severe flare. I was put on 60 mgs of Pred and started back on Remicade. I have already tapered my pred down to 30 mgs (I swore I would never take it again, I was desperate!). I am doing pretty well, but I was considering changing from Remicade to Humira, simply for the convienience. My doctor has said that people who do well on Remicade generally do not have as good of results when they go to Humira. Just wondering if anyone has any personal experience. I don't want to be on anything, but my body is telling this just isn't possible. Bummer. It was worth a shot!
