Allergic to sulfur drugs and been maintained with 6-MP. Has worked for me. However, I have also done Remicade and Humira. I have always relapsed at some point after stopping treatments. I have always had a severe case of Crohn’s and every side effect to go with it. I suffer as much from side effects as from bowel degeneration. So I’m not sure if I’ve ever really had complete remission.
