Remicade Monotherapy?

Remicade Monotherapy?

I had my first Remicade infusion on Monday. I feel less pain already and am looking forward to this treatment. Remicade put me in remission in 1997 when it first came out so I hope it works again. From my research, it looks like Remicade is prescribed most commonly with MTX. I actually haven't read anything online that states Remicade can be prescribed as a monotherapy (alone).

Remicade

Remicade

I am starting remicade combined with my methotrexate next week. I am in severe pain because not only do I have rheumatoid arthritis but I have scleritis that has come along for the trip. It is constantly recurrent and now can push past steroids. I'm wondering if anyone has used this for this or had this manifestation of the disease and found remicade helpful?

I’m currently taking Humeria alongside my methotrexate and still flaring, my rheumatologist wants to change my medication and has given me the choice of Remicade or Simponi, which is better, what are your experiences of each?

Remicade vs Plaquinil

Remicade vs Plaquinil

My doc just called and said my test was negative for Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). However RA is still positive.
She wants to put me on remicade or plaquinil. What has your experience been with either drug? Thanks!
