I had my first infusion of Remicade last Wednesday. Everything went well. It took me over a year to decide what treatment option to go with, but knew I wanted to get off of prednisone. I am still on it right now, but only taking 10mg per day. Hopefully after my next infusion, I can get off of it for good! Anyway, there is a lot of bad stories about
Remicade out there on the internet. I finally found a presentation on line that talked about
the side effects and other associated risks. It helped a lot. Here is the link. http://programs.rmei.com/CCFA139VL/Presentation/player.html
It talkes about
each treatment, but focuses on the biologicals like Remicade. The infusion was simple. I went to the Day Hospital at 8am. They game me some Tylenal and started the infusion around 830am. I was completely done and out of the hospital at 1045am. I was planning on returning to work, but the Tylenal and something else they game me made me extremely tired. Hopes this helps!
