Hi, I'm new just today to this site. Remicade worked wonders for my daughter and I. Unfortunately, the remicade also has side effects that after we each had the infusions for over a year but not quite for 2 years we had to stop taking it for different reasons. My daughter stopped as she had a reaction and I stopped as I developed lung infections. It made us feel new again and we enjoyed good health for a long time. Enjoy and good luck to you.

I am on it! It has done wonders for me. Before I went on it I was in and out of the hospital for 4 months. I get 1 dose every 8 weeks. The best part of it is not being on roids anymore!

I was on remicade! I had surgery 5 years ago and now have an illeostomy but right before my surgery, they had me on remicade as a last resort. They started me off at 1 dose every 8 weeks, then it became 1 dose every 6 weeks, then 2 doses every 6 weeks and finally 2 doses every 4 weeks.. after that, they gave up and told me that it's not working. BUT, they said I was in a very small percentage of people that it doesn't work with. Most people it works right away and takes away fistulas as well! Apparently it usually works great! I hope it works better for you than it did for me!
