Pasha & Craigy bhoy.
Pasha I am assuming you are in the UK as Infliximab is what Remicade seems to known as here. Craighy bhoy I can see you are in Scotland.
If it makes you both feel any better I have been on Infliximab since last October and it is working well for me. I am still a bit loose in the morning but a lot of that depends on what I eat. I have very little pain. I also feel better in my general health. I admit the 1st infusion is quite scary - just because it is something you have not had before. However after the 1st few I find my infusion time quite relaxing. It doesnt hurt me and I get to chill and read (sometimes I doze off). I just sit fully clothed in a chair for a few hours, I even get tea and biscuits. Although I tend to turn down the curled edge sandwiches. The only draw back for me was that the 1st 4 times I had the infusion I got a sinus headache that lasted 3 days (weird), but all that happens now is that I feel a bit tired.
I hope it is sucessful for you (Pasha - for your hubby). He is lucky to have you and that you are interested to look this up for him.
I do not find that I get more infections than normal - I just wash my hands more often
I ahve have pred, budonside and azathiroprine 2 in the past
