About to start Remicade infusions

Posted by skolotilin @skolotilin, Jul 31 9:10am

I’ve been on Entyvio but it’s not stopping flares without 40mgs prednisone, and doctor says I have to get off prednisone. Any suggestions or advice about Remicade?

Hi @skolotilin, I know that @pinktower, @thankful, and @guener have experienced Crohn's. Perhaps they can share their stories with you. Are you looking to take Remicade for your Crohns or ulcerative colitis? When did you start taking Entyvio?

@skolotilin– It's been nearly 20 years now that my wife has had Crohns and has been on Remicaid. She has really done well on it and rarely has any issues related to Crohns. She eats well and does not stay away from spicey foods on occasion. No one can really say what the long term effects of being on this drug will be, but now at age 63 she is continueing to do very well.
If you have any specific questions about her experiences, please don't hesitate to ask. Jim @thankful
