Hello al,
I was just wondering if anybody else saw really good results after their first remicade treatment, and then saw things getting worse after their second treatment. I saw an improvement in my symptoms, and then after I went for the second infusion all the improvements I had previously seen were gone, and I felt back to my crappy self (no pun intended). Does anybody have any similar experience of can help me understand.
Thanks : )

I didn't see any results until 3 or 4 infusions. Don't give up hope too quickly.

i have my 4th infusion monday. i felt nothing until about about 2 weeks ago...i've been feeling pretty good the past 2 weeks- can't chalk it up to Remicade for sure but who knows.

Some patients do have fabulous results after their first infusion and others it takes a couple or a few!! My Daughter fell into the few category! Patience paid off. Still on it 7 years later.
