Hi. Thanks everyone for your replies. I am in constant contact with her doctor per their request. They give her Benadryl and Tylenol before her infusion. Also, she has been on Pred. since the first of Jan. and the doctor said that would also help in not having a reaction.
I have read that stomach pain is a common side effect of the Remicade but the doctor said that it should not be ongoing. It has been since last Wed. evening. It appears to be worse in the a.m. The nausea has just started the past couple of days. The dr called her in a prescription for an antispasmodic that she started on Sat. I wonder if that is also making her have an upset stomach??
The doctor wants to do a colonoscopy next week to take a look. She hasn't had one since last April.
Any comments are greatly appreciated.
