Question Anyone on Remicade? Need help

I have had my 6th infusion of Remicade at monthly intervals and have been increased each time, last dose 500mg. I can tell NO difference in symptoms, and my Dr won't tell me what dose most of his RA patients require before they respond. I'd just like to hear from people who have taken it or are on it now and find out what dose seemed to work. It is getting frustrating to keep getting IV infusions, have them not help, and have no idea what my target might be. This is also my 5th biologic that hasn't helped, so when do I just give up and stay miserable? I am on max dose of MTX injections and 15mg Prednisone. Would like to get off Pred. since I am having rib fractures spontaneously (OUCH). Thanks for any advice.
