It's really a pretty simple process. Get premeds, if your doctor suggested them; if Benadryl is prescribed, you may only want to take one pill, since it's not really safe to drive when you're too tired. Wait for nurse to put in IV, and start saline. Then, when the Remi is ready, they put that in. I usually take a nap while listening to my iPod, or watching the TV. I never had any problems going to work after my infusion, you shouldn't have much of a problem.
One more thing - it's a good idea to drink a lot of water before, so your veins are easy to find.
