Question: Cambio de Remicade a Humira

Mi hijo lleva 9 años con Remicade, hace 3 años con 10 mg x kilo de peso. El Crohn esta controlado, hay una estenosis rectal que se a mantenido desde el comienzo de la enfermedad. Es conveniente un cambio de medicamento? Me da temor tantos años con Remicade que afecte su salud en otro organo de su cuerpo, el higado por ejemplo.
Que me sugieren por favor.... Gracias.

Translation: "My son has taken Remicade for 9 years. For the last 3 years, he's taken 10mg for every kilo he weighs. Crohn has been controlled. There's a rectal "stenosis" that has been there since the beginning of the disease. Should we change the medicine? I'm worried about taking Remicade for so many years in case it affects other organs, like his liver. What do you suggest? Thank you"

Hi Maria,

I don't feel this quesiton can be answered. It is a very specific question regarding a complicated issue.
