Hey Judy, sorry I'm late to the party! ;) My doc took me off the Remi many years ago, probably about
five. I'm now on two Lialda that I take at night, and I feel better than ever. I too had no symptoms, and have now had three clear colonoscopies. The last scope the doctor couldn't believe I had been dx'd with UC. Of course we all know that I'll never stop the meds in fear of being sick again!
I did want to mention that I was a little afraid of stopping Remicade since that med was my saving grace. It took about
a year for the doc to finally convince me that I was in a good remission and that he thought I'd be fine on maintenance meds. To date, I'm doing really well, have retired and am living life happy. Sending good thoughts to you Judy -- I think we were the first to try the Remi -- I was a lab rat and used it before it was approved...
At that time, I begged for anything to help. And I feel so fortunate that it did.
you and sending good thoughts your way.
