Switching infusion Meds
Updated February 23, 2023 in Ulcerative Colitis
Hi Everyone! I am new to IBDLYFE. I have been diagnosed with UC for 12 years and have done Humaria injections (grew antibodies after 6mo). I then went to Remicade for three years while taking azathioprine in conjunction.
I recently had to switch infusion drugs to do an insurance change- Now receive Inflectra. I have had one dose and honestly feel so sick- It feels like I haven't received an infusion, and my disease is taking over again.
I know I need to give the inflectra time- But has anyone else experienced this? How do you handle or make flares more bearable?
Also, anyone else takes azathioprine- and have the worst effects from it?
