okay so i go for my third infusion tomorrow. since the first infusion 6 weeks ago i have
-stopped passing blood
-only go about 2-3 times a day (used to be 5-12 depending )
-limited stomach cramps
My doc pulled me off all of my meds (6-mp, canasa, Mesalimine etc) except for the asacol. She wanted me to continue taking 12 pills a day. Well i s tarted feeling so much better after the infusion that i stopped taking the asacol as often. it started with me takingin twice a day instead of 3 times. I have for 2 weeks been off of it completely. I feel fine. Although i have to admit i am slightly scared to tell my doc. She always gets on to me about stuff like this.
is anyone out there just on remicade and off of thier asacol?
