I tried Remicade for I think 3 infusions. After the 3rd one I started having a tightness feeling in my chest and the dr. stopped completely. Then my last GI said that he wasnt going to try Humara because if Remicade didn't work then neither would that. i told him we didnt really get to try it and all that but I have heard otherwise from crohns patients and it did work after Remicade. Right now we are trying the 6-MP and if that doesn't work then I will try to push for it again.I believe it takes longer than 3 weeks to be effective. I would research that. I'm typing this on my cell - or I would have done it for you.
Have u ever tried Remicade - or just Cimzia in the past?
This is a really old post but I'm going to reply anyway in case anyone else wants to know. I've seen people mention on the forum seeing side effects within a few days of taking it but those were more extreme reactions. It really depends on the person (few days to months). Personally I've never noticed any significant side effects from it and I've been on it for over 15 years. 100mg may be too high for you if you have significant side effects Steveyank. Again sorry for the late reply, I just now saw this post.Hi. I just started 6mp today, 100mg. Just wondering how long it take for side effects to appear if they are going to. I Am also on entyvio for 4 months.
What dose were you taking mtngrl55? I wonder if maybe the dose for you was a little high. Also if your liver enzymes went up then you could talk to your doctor about trying a low dose of 6MP with Allopurinol. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2659140/ Good luck!Hi! Thanks for all of the info here. I have just been on entocort with no results and increasing side effects, so am finally ready to go back to 6-MP. It worked for me for three years but I went off of it because the nausea started to get really bad. That was 10 years ago. Since the 6-MP I have had minor flares and used Aza for one, it worked great but my liver enzymes skyrocketed. I was already in remission after ony 3 months of it. I wish I could use it again. I've been researching cannabis vs 6-MP and while I like that cannabis has less side effects, I want to achieve remission again. I have been Mostly concerned by the risk of lymphoma but I've found that I'm not in the high risk age or gender so will try it again, this time using nabalone for the nausea.
