I have been taking Remicade infusions for about 6 years for Ulcerative Colitis. I've been in remission ever since. This past winter I was very sick with a fever that lasted for 8 weeks and during that time I could get my IV Remicade infusion. During the time I was off the Remicade I was abel to lose 23 pounds and my body didn't ache anymore. I started back on the Remicade, have had two infusions and have gained back 20 pounds and my body aches again. Is there anyone out there who has stopped taking Remicade for UC and are still in remission?
Hi Cindy''' THIS is best to get this info from the doctor someone on it may say something but they don't know your case and there degree can and most likely is much different than yours prior to you next dose write down whatever questions you have and demand to talk to the physician about these questions..hope this makes since but there could be a good reason they want to keep you on for a bit longer after remission you sure don't want to have to start all over again..hope this is clear and makes since... hang in there friend and get you info right from the horses mouth. stay positive and see what is up in your case..best wishes that it remains that way..Chuck1957
