Many here have. Entyvio works good for me, i have moderate colitis since 2015, almost a year in remission now. Remicade didn't really work for me, also I was tired the first day and had joint pains from time to time. With entyvio I have no side effects or at least it feels like that.
Yea side effects suck, like acne from steroids.
8 years remission and counting on remicade
I’ve had UC since 1992 tried almost every medicine they had for it, was hospitalized in 2012/2013 worst pain/ flare up of my life. They put me on remicade, it worked but I had an allergic reaction on my third dose, then they put me on humira, that didn’t work. Then finally I was put on simponi, haven’t looked back since. It’s worked so well I’ve already forgotten what it’s like to have a flare up.
I hope something can work for me too.
I’m curious to know why your doctor recommends going on biologics if you’re in remission? I’m about a month into budesonide to try to avoid having to go on biologics
I think its because i have gotten flares after budesonide before, so in order to not flare again.
