Triple antibiotic combo therapy pulled me out of a year long flare where I was steroid dependant. If I were in your shoes, these are the options I would consider in order of preference:
1. Fecal Transplant by a doctor with experience doing it (hard to find!)
2. Fecal Transplant at home
3. Triple Antibiotic Therapy
4. LDN (low dose naltrexone)
5. Humira?? I don't know if your allergy to remicade would make this a no-go
6. Drug trials?? There may be other therapies you could try, like other biologics perhaps?
Having said this, I am not a doctor and I don't know your medical history, so you would need advice on which of these would be appropriate and safe for you.
Oh yeah, one more thing. Some people respond well to high doses of VSL#3DS which is a probiotic (live healthy bacteria). It can restore the balance of good/bad bacteria in your gut, especially if you have taken a lot of antibiotics.
