Been on it for two years. Very helpful as a baseline drug, and doing inhalers as needed. Zero side effects - only occasional fatigue a day or so after. A big thumbs up!
55 yrs old. UC >12 yrs after proctitus. For flares failed prednisone, cortenemas (too little too late), mesalamines (hives, fever), 6mp (fever), Uceris (no effect). 12/13: remicade stopped severe flare! 6/14: i stopped remicade due to debilitating joint pains & weakness. Dx: Anti-TNF Induced Lupus; polyneuropathy; recovered w/prednisone (40mg then very slow taper ~ 4 months). Next UC meds?
