I’ve been in Remicade, had bad side effects from that. Tried to get on Xeljanz but insurance wouldn’t cover that until I try Humira. My doctor also suggested maybe doing Entyvio every 6 weeks but I’m not responding to that. I really liked Entyvio.
If you've been on Remicade and had bad side effects then you probably want to forgo Humira because they are very similar medications. My bad side effects from Remicade I also had with Humira, Simponi and Cimzia.
Stelara is fast acting and using a different mechanism. My GI told me that it is more effective in CD patients than UC. I had to get the correct dosing but it's been good ever since I received the IBD dosing instead of the psoriasis less dose(I was taking offlable before the FDA approved it for IBDs at the higher dose).
Are you taking 6MP or Imuran?
