Remicade has been a lifesaver for me!! I have been on it and methotrexate for over a year now. I began infusions in July 2005 and I am really doing well. It has helped my joint pain and swelling so much. I haven't had any reactions to the infusions but I continue to receive pre-meds "just in case." Shoot me any questions you might have and I'll see what I can help you with. Keep me posted on your visits and such. Good luck! I'll keep good thoughts for you!
