Hi..I have been taking oral meds for my crohn'e the latest of which is endocort which initially was doing well..my specialist says that there are two other meds to use if the entocrt does not help the problem..lately I have had more flare ups of the disease so for me I do not think entocrt is the answer and I don't want to try the other two meds that are available to me because I think it would take too long to get results..a friend of mine told me about a friend of her's that is using Remicade with fantastic results so I am thinking that I would like to do this as well..I know it is given by iv infusion which I do not have a problem with but one of the things I am wondering about is if they would consider doing a pic line..if anyone has any answers for me I would truly appreciate that..thanksView Thread
