This is my experience with Remicade. I have been taking it since Dec. 2004. This is my drs. thought on increasing dose/frequency and I like it. She increases dose first instead of increasing frequency. When she ups the dose she doesn't go to double, but to 7mg/kg. Next she will double the dose, and when that starts wearing off she will start moving the frequency up. I have good success with this. Having said that, back in May, I had THE WORST 2 weeks in years. So we moved my infusion up a week, and all was good again. I am at 7mg/kg every 8 weeks, and I'm hoping to get another 5 years out remicade!
