Hi bk1579, and welcome to HealingWell. I've been on Remi for over two years now and am doing really well, living a normal-type life! That's not to say that I don't get the occasional UC symptom such as achey joints, rumbly tummy, and loose stools, but it doesn't happen too often. Are you taking anything besides the Remicade such as Imuran or 6mp? I didn't have any problems tapering off the pred, but it sure was nice to get off of it! Take care, and if you go up above the blue bar to "Google Custom Search" you can search about
the Remicade topic and get some good info.
Remicade - will have my 18th infusion on July 12.
Imuran - 100 mgs....taken before bedtime
Vitamin B-12/Biotin, Probiotics
