Starting Stelara

Remicade has failed, so my GI called and said he's putting me on Stelara. First an infusion, and then I will have to inject myself. Currently on Prednisone taper, I really really hate prednisone. Anyway, are there a lot of side effects with this drug? I seem to react to everything I've tried. Are the injections painful like Humira?
