Took dose on Tuesday. First and second day went on well. But starting day 3, I began to get shortness of breath, fast heart beats, dizziness, need to sleep a lot and fatigue. This is my 17th dose so this is uncommon.I'm in the middle of a flare up and my intestines really hurt. Also, I have this vitamin deficiency I posted about previously. My B complex injection is due tomorrow. Could all this have led to the fatigue?

Hard to say for sure if it's related to the Remicade. I think you'll have to see if the symptoms persist. If you've had that many doses with no issues, I think it might be related to something else.

A bit concerning that you're flaring while on Remicade. You should be feeling pretty good by now. I would definitely bring this up with your GI, and also get some input on the symptoms you've experienced.

Hope your feeling better soon.

73monte, thank you. A mistake I've made caused this flare up. Two weeks ago, I suddenly went down to 4.5 mg of cortiment (budesonide) instead of 9 mg. I informed my GI and he said that this flare up will take some time but will pass.

You're right. I don't think remicade is the cause. I think I'm vitamin deficient. I experienced that many years ago. I hate that feeling.
