I think the decision for Remicade is up to you and your doctor. But if you are stuck in a flare and nothing else seems to work then it's a possibility that Remicade can help you even for a minor flares. Of course, this is the last step on the medication chain (well except maybe Cyclosporine (sp?)) But you have to be careful of long term bleeding, which I'm sure you are aware of can lead to anemia.
