My Rheumatologist Is Wanting To Start Remicade Infusions. Is Anyone Else On It? Help With Info? Side Effects?

My Rheumatologist Is Wanting To Start Remicade Infusions. Is Anyone Else On It? Help With Info? Side Effects?

A myRAteam Member said:

I am currently on remicade infusion. Yes it takes 3 hours. But I find it relaxing to sit back and veg out. They always give me coffee and a snack when they start and lunch before I leave. I feel like a new woman after the treatment. Unfortunately I think I am getting used to the dosage and will have to up the dosage or find something new. But I have had no side effects. I have been on this for two years. I have had no problems this is one of my favorite medicines so far. I dread trying something else.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask me specific questions and I will do my best to answer them all.

I'm on Remicade infusions along with methotrexate injections. Haven't been on for very long. But haven't had any bad side effects that I can tell of. Good luck

I was on it for a bit. Only side effect I had was I got really tired after the infusion. It didn't seem to help with me and to have to sit for the infusion for so long I stopped. I'm been on cimzia injections.
