I loved remocade infusions. It wa sthe best - I didn’t even consider disability for myself. Then I had to go off. Then I built up antibodies. And then I became disabled. :(

I had my first infusion yesterday. It went well. I felt a little dizzy afterwards but I got passed that. However, I was super tired this morning and had to call-in to let them know that I would be late for work.

I didn't experience the sickness or loss of hair, but for being a really powerful drug- it didn't work well for me.

Rhemicade helped me , but once I got on Simponi I am like as normal as normal can be! The trick with biologics is to get the drug that targets your TNF factors head on. It’s just like cancer research, the right cocktail makes a huge difference.

Remicade was my first. I was originally diagnosed with scleroderma and later it was changed to RA. I got through two infusions before I had a reaction to it. I started getting open sores on my lower back.
