Just wondering how long it takes for remicade to kick in after my first infusion?

It may take 3, 4, or 5 infusions, so sit back and be patient! :)

I've had two infusions so far and am feeling great.  I noticed a difference a week after the first one.  I think it depends on the person. 
Good luck!

I've had the 0, 2 and 6 week from start infusions and I'm still having symptoms (fistulas). My next infusion is in 4 weeks when I start the maintenance portion. I've been told it can take up to 3 months from the start of maintenance to really see a difference. Hang in there.

It took quite a while for me to really see significant improvement. Changes in frequency and dosing and finally I was able to get it right. For me, Humira worked quicker and more effective.
