Hi Sams Colitis, and welcome to Healingwell. It's always so difficult to hear of a child going through the heck of UC, so my thoughts are with you as you help him battle with the symptoms. You might want to try the enemas along with the 6mp, as one of our members has a motto....."treat from both ends," and this has worked for a lot of folks. I am on Remicade and have been for over two years; just had another one yesterday and I'm doing fine on it. I've had no side effects at all and live a pretty normal life with very few symptoms, and most of it is fatigue or achey joints every so often. Here's another website you might be interested in that is for children with gastro problems:
Hope this helps, and my best to you and Sam.
Remicade - will have my 18th infusion on September 5.
