hi & best wishes w/ your new therapy.
regarding remicade, i've been on it for about 16 months now. since august i've been on 600mg every 3 weeks.
i use 6mp along with it.
i went through serum sickness in April and it was AWFUL, it felt like i was really going to die. felt like the most severe flu ever...couldn't MOVE not even to go to the bathroom! and leg & muscle PAIN!!!!!!!
my doc didn't want to pul me off of the remicade & i really did not want to go off of it either as i've already put in 2 years of Enbrel & 2 years of Humira.
he has me "pre" Pre-medicate for Remicade to ward off serum sickness.
so 4 days prior infusion i'm on 50mg benedryl daily plus 20mg prednisone and then the same exact meds "post" infusion for 4 days.
it works like a charm.
best wishes & good luck
