I am currently 22 years old. I was diagnosed with Crohn's at age 18. After trying a few different medications; of which none seemed to work, I started taking Remicade at age 19.

Comment:
I have been using remicade for 6 years. At first it way very expensive, $18,000 per treatment (using 10 vials), now cost is 1/2 of that. Very satisfied with drug, but the infusion process is a pain since you have to get it intraveinously. The crohns is now in remission. The only dissapointing effect of crohns is the constant diahrea.
