Does anyone have very low blood pressure from taking these drugs?  Is 70 over 105 low? I keep getting really low readings and the nurses who give the remicade and also the nurses who check me in at the doctor's don't say anything? I fainted getting my blood taken and am quite confcerned about this? My dentist also took it and asked why it is so low? Anyone know about this and what it could be?

Do you mean 105/70? When I first start my infusions, my bp is around 100/80 (at the highest)....then during the infusion it goes down to 85/54 or somewhere around there. No, the nurses won't say anything unless there machine starts blinking at them and beeping....that happened to me once, and I can't remember what the reading was, but they made me sit up and then get up and walk for a little bit. I normally have a lower bp then most people, but it is just part of the infusion where it gets lower during the infusion. Also, I am really relaxed and sleeping most of the time, so that lowers it also. I'm not worried about it......

I see, yah that is what I meant.  I guess it is not that low then.  I have always had good low blood pressure, but it was considered normal, not this low, but I guess it can go lower and I have room.  OK thanks.

If your systolic (top number) drops below 90, that's usually when it is considered "low," or when the diastolic number drops below 60.  If you took your blood pressure at varying points throughout the day it could change by a good 20 points!  So I wouldn't worry too much about that.

A resting pulse of more than 90 isn't the best sign and you should be checked for an overactive thyroid (simple blood tests - TSH, free T4 and T3).  That's a common cause of a high resting pulse rate.
