My daughter has been on 6mp from the very beginning, she stayed on it through the Remicade year and the year of remission once remicade was stopped(so she got 2 years remission with remicade)She hasn't used prednisone yet, though there have been rectal meds with steroids through the years. I forgot she was taking Uceris for about
10 days before she began the simponi, that didn't help.. She responded
right away though to the Simponi.
Hope to moVe shot up, but it's a holiday weekend and she has to order it and have it shipped. Hope it works.
Like others we are waiting for the Vedolizumab. Hope it's really ready to go with insurance companies.
The Simponi was billed at $14,000 . It was covered by insurance, but it took weeks to get it after it was ordered.
