How long have you been on Entyvio? You need to give it at least six months before declaring it a failure and moving on.
With regards to failing Humira, how long were you on it? Did you have any response at all? Did you have an initial response followed by declining response? Did you have blood tests done to check your levels?
If Humira was a primary failure (meaning you had good levels for long enough, but it just didn't work), then Remicade isn't likely to work either. On the other hand, if you had *some* response to Humira, just not *enough* of a response, then Remicade very well could work.
As for the biosimilar to Remicade, in principle it should be just as effective as Remicade, but I'm not sure there's study data to support that specifically for UC patients. Also, the same comments above about Remicade apply to its biosimilars.
As for breastfeeding, it's OK with Remi and with its biosimilars. The website saying that is a CYA type of situation.
