Welcome, Mike!

Remicade response really varies from person to person - with some not seeing much response at all and eventually stopping all together. I seem to be an odd one in that I responded within 2 introductory infusions. I hope you see the same results! Good luck!

Welcome Mike,

As everyone has already said, it works differently for everyone. I started to feel immediately better after the first infusion. Almost 100% after second infusion. This drug can be a miracle for some people!

Good luck!

I've had 5 infusions and haven't noticed that big of a difference, which I'm really upset about. I'm also on Entocort and Imuran. It truly is different with everyone, hopefully you will get relief really quickly. Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm so tired, when will this get better?
