crohns disease/pain meds cut in half

I'm really hoping someone who has some knowledge on this sees this. My sister has Crohn's disease, unfortunately she's in the 3% who have a life threatening kind. Her specialist put her on Remicade, which has a lot of side effects like making ur cystic acne waaayyy worse. That is no problem for her because the side effects for medication she's been on in the past would be horrible like chandeliering her bones. Peices of her bones would break off and get caught between the skin and try to stick through the skin. She's been on pain medication ever since i can remember, i couldn't imagine her not ever needing it considering her bowels and intestines are all cut up on the inside which leads to infections like abscesses. Our doctor recently got in trouble for some stu...

remicade & teeth

Has anyone seen any effect on their teeth when they have been on remicade for a long time. My dentist seems to think this is my problem. Thank you. Please, someone answer as soon as possible. ## I have been on Remicade for years, and I had a problem with my teeth, but it was not related. I was on Depo Provera for five years, and that made my teeth very brittle and decay very rapidly. My dentist was SHOCKED. It also caused Ostiopenia in my spine. I have the spine of an 80 year old woman and I am only 27! Check your other medications to see if it could be something other than the Remicade. ## yes. my teeth became loose on the left side plus a lot ofother issues including a few absesses in my mouth. ## me too, I've been on it for 3 years and have now had 2 root canals and several filli...

Remicade antibodies?

I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosis spondylitis in 1998. By 2000 I was so crippled I could barely walk. Anti-inflammatory meds were dropping my weight and not working. Methotrexate gave me heart murmurs and made me pass out. Remicade was new, not much was known about it, i figured it was worth a try. After my 1st infusion I felt better, I went into remission but stayed on every 8 weeks. Amazing for 10-15 years. At 1 point I had an insurance change, switched doctors. She took me off remicade because I was in remission, also she didn't like the drug and thought it was much too inconvenient to sit through infusions. She felt I didn't need it. I didn't mind sitting through infusions... Within a month I was flaring, tried enbrel, almost died from methotrexate,...

Humira to remicade

I was on humira injections to treat my complex perianal fistulating crohns disease. It was great until I came out of remission and had reaccurring flares of infection. Infliximab was the reccomended treatment to go on with. There was a period of 4 weeks between treatments and during that time I developed excruciating lower leg pain and can barely walk. They burn and throb even when I'm not walking. My head aches and I feel worse now than before I stopped the humira. I had my first infliximab infusion yesterday and feel like I.ve been run down by a bus. Can anyone out there relate to this? ## Those can be side effects of Remicade, which contains Infliximab, and the warnings advise you to consult your doctor about it. Other issues may include bleeding, tiredness, bruising, fever, and ...

Remicade and Kidney Cancer

Has anyone taken Remicade for Crohn's Arthritis? I also have had surgery for a small tumor of the kidney which was cancerous. ## Remicade is an immunosuppressant medication. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood changes, irritability, and weight changes. Are you on any other medications? How are your kidneys doing? Was the cancer malignant, or benign? ## Thanks for replying...his cancer was malignant, but (no treatments required). He has been on prednisone since 1991 - 10 milligrams. He is taking 6-9 tylenol for arthritis daily and 2 atasol 30s each day. He isn't doing very well because the drugs he is currently on isn't helping with his mobility.
