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?
