I am on REMICAIDE.i am getting ready for my 10th infusion.IT has helped me but it took till the 8 th infusion before I could feel any relief and it's not alot but I am hoping. I never had any good results with any of THE medicines and I've been on 8 of them with no good results the only one that helped was the cimiza which is an injection.and I took it for 2 years and it only helped me for 6 months.my last infusion of regicide that went up to 500 MCGS.but even after 2.5 weeks taking the infusion it only last that long.I have so much nerve damaged in my lower back the only thing I think is going to help me is to sever the nerves in my back and be done.but that would make me an invalid.but would it get me out of pain?. I just don't know.

They always want to go another round. That's why after 6 rounds I said no more
