I have read about
people on here using it. I don't know much about
it, but I will be going on it tomorrow. My doctor is prescribing it at a fairly low dose in order to help kick-start the effects of the Humira that I will also be starting this week.
From what I can find online, it inhibits growth of certain cells (which is why it's also used to treat cancer), and can also inhibit the immune system, which is I think the role that would affect UC.
