Recently Diagnosed with Crohn's....

Does anyone have info on Remicade and Asacol. I have yet to find any science between taking these meds and being able to gain muscle. The Remicade is an IV infusion that takes 2-4 hours to administer. Its stays in your system for 8 weeks and then you get the infusion again.

I am about to come off Asacol and Prednisone but am sure my Gi dr will keep me on the Remicade treatment to keep me in Remission.

Any info would be great!!
