hi my name is Eddie I'm 18 and I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. back in October 2012.

I have been on prednisone since then, and since I was in the hospital in February I have been on prednisone mercaptapurine asacol and canasa, and although the symptoms are slowly getting better, the pain seems to be getting worse

I'm new at this but I was wondering the ups and downs of going to Remicadee. I have heard many of the side effects and have been afraid to even consider it, but for two months I have only been able to get up and do stuff if I take percocet, and that's no way to live.

thank you
