Hi all. I've had UC for 8 years now. The last 4 I have been on Remicade but unfortunately I have stopped responding to it. My doc wants to put me on Simponi. I had a flex sig yesterday so she could check out what's going on before starting me on it and as expected it's inflammed and pretty active. I looked up all the info on Simponi this morning and I'm pretty nervous about it. I knew there were rare side effects of getting cancer with Remicade but it seems like there are more chances of it with Simponi. Has anyone tried Simponi? Did you experience any side effects? Any info on this drug would be super helpful as I'm suppose it start it within the next 2 weeks....
dx: UC 2006, Asacol HD, 6mp, prednisone, remicade
