Went to arthritis doc about a month ago for joint pain, after about 1-3weeks, prior to next infushoin. .  he took blood from me and sent it to two different clinicis.  found it that, i do not have arthritis in any form and  the Remicade that i have been on for 2 yrs does not work like it used to.  i have been getting the infushion every 8 weeks.  one of the reults that came back showed that i did not have any remicade in my system after 7 weeks.  So called my Gastro doc yesterday about this.  the way it sounds i will be taking it ever 6 weeks.  i do not have a problem taking it that often, but, my pocket book does.  it costs me $500 every time i go in there, after insurance.  i do not want the alternative which is, them nasty Humira shots.    I always live my life oneday at a time.  but now i am  nervous the remicade is failing me. yeah
