I have been on both drugs. I prefer the the Remicade but my body had gotten use to it and they have now switched me over to Humira. I don't like it as much and does not work as well as remicade....even thou both are the same drug only differance remicade has the mouse protien and humora has the human protien...I wish I could be back on remicade as It was the best 5 yrs of my life...since getting crohnes at teh age of two being on remicade for 5 yrs was like being normal....no it was being normal. Never saw my specialist except 1x per yr fro a scope which my body never got immune to it....humira ok but nothing to rave about
