Daughter just started Stelara

My daughter has had Crohn's disease for about 15 years. She has been on Imuran, Pentasa, & Remicade. They all stopped working. The doctor has just started her on Stelara about 1 week ago. Does anyone know how long it take to start working or see any improvement?

It will probably take a few months. You also might want to inquire in the Treatment section under Stelara.
Diagnosed in 1990. On Humira, Imuran, Gabapentin, Colestipol, Synthroid, Lialda. Resection in April of 2010. Allergic to Remicade, Penicillin, Flagyl, Doxycycline. Thyroid issues and psoriasis and neuropathy and mild cerebral palsy. Mild arthritis in my lower back.

Stelara is known to be slow starter compared to some of the other drugs. It could be a couple of months before she really gets the benefit of the treatment.
