My daughter is on Remicade and she gets a 1 hr saline flush after....that makes a world of a difference on how she does after. Her first 3 loading doses were at a different place, and they only did a 10 minute flush. She couldn't even get out of bed the next day! Now, she has no problems at all!
She also gets Benedryl thru IV now, where as the first place no pre meds at all.
