Looking for your expertise on Remicade. The possible side effects scare me, looking for more info from people that have actually used this. Going to my doctor in a few days and she wants me to start Remicade, not sure what to do
South of Boston, Ma
diagnosed with UC in 1982. Enojoyed 20 year remission with just minor blips here and there (approximately 14 of those years without any meds)
Was in a flare for 2 very long years (2006-2008) which Asacol didn't help at all, possibly made it worse. Finally in remission again since Jan 2008, can't believe it..............(after going back on Sulfasalazine/Azulfidine)
currently on Sulfasalazine 2 tabs 3x day. Folic acid, Omega 3, Probiotics, multi vitamin, calcium supplement, Biotin 5000mcg, Fibercon.
