I was DX Crohns and was started on Remicade, which was starting to work nicely. Then the insurance decided that they were not going to pay for that and made me switch to the generic inflexamib. It did NOT work as well and just as my doc and I were discussing options, the insurance decided to force me on to Inflectra. At 10mg/Kg every 6 weeks, 9 months later, doc has declared that I am currently in "remission" i just wish I felt like I was. I saw a significant improvement in my CD under Inflectra, and I was actually very hesitant to switch to it.
On another note, I just received a letter from the jack-wagons at the insurance, they now say that they are not going to pay for the inflectra, until I have "tried and failed" other medications, such as, Humira, Skyrizi, or Stelara. I really hate insurance companies sometimes!
