I've been on remicade and have been in remission for at least 8 years, however within the last two years I've experienced three flares (about 5-6 months apart) which was unusual for me. I was treated with prednisone and shortened my infusions to every 6 weeks now. I'm now starting another flare and this was about 10 days after my last infusion. I'm wondering if the remicade is no longer working. The trouble is Medicare covers remicade but practically nothing else as far as a biologic or so it seems. Is anyone here on Medicare taking a biologic other than remicade in case I have to switch to something else?
