I had a Remicade infusion today that ended around 4:00 PM. 4 hours later, and I am dizzy and dripping with sweat. I live in Arizona, so it is very hot, but I have been sitting in an air-conditioned classroom since 6 pm, and I'm still sweating. Is this normal, or something I should be concerned about? Should I call my doctor tomorrow?

Hi cynoo, it does not sound normal. I would call your doctor asap. I have been on Remicade for over 2 years
and I have no side effects from the drug.
