In the past year my BP has slowly been creeping up and it could  be for several reasons.
I see that one of the side effects of Remicade is high BP. I am on high dosages of  Remicade (1000mg every 6 weeks) and it seems to be doing the work.
It has caused me to put on weight which can't help the Blood pressure but is the BP caused by a reaction to the Remicade?
Anyone that could shed some light please let me know.

I thought that Remicade made your BP drop not go up.
Well after I started Remicade I went from 117/75 to 100/60

When the nurses take your BP when you are getting an infusion they are checking if your BP is dropping.
