I can tell you that my GI doc started me on Remicade this past April. After only 2 doses, my stools were concentrated with soo much blood that they looked like coffee grounds and had to go into ER again. I required blood transfusion that night. The bleeding eventually subsided 2 months after, though there is still a tiny amount of blood just can't see the color in my stools anymore but they say it's still there. I take iron 65 to boost my red blood count and stool softener to help prevent stool from hardening due to the iron.
