Hi jennifer -

After my 2nd infusion my symptoms were better. Didn't have major side effects on the first one but the 2nd went even better - just minor fatigue.

Hope your treatments are going better.

I didn't have any symptoms after my first infusion, but after my second I was tired for about a week and was getting headaches.

Hi Jennifer,
I have been on Remicade for over 2 years and I am doing fine. I have no-side effects from the
Remicade. You should start feeling alot better as you get more infusions. I get my Remicade every
8 weeks.
