I've just completed my second dose of Remicade and have experienced a side effect that I also had after the first one but forgot to mention when the Dr. called the next day to see how I was doing.
Both times about two hours after the infusion I get EXTREMELY tired and weak. Checked my blood pressure and it was 89/46 with a pulse of 79, my normal readings are around 110/80 pulse 62. Also had fairly rapid breathing. This lasts for about 30 minutes.
I will mention this to my doctor but wondering if anyone else has had this problem.

Being tired and weak, even exhausted after in infusion, is fairly typical. If that's the only side effect you're experiencing, then you're doing fine.

Usually, this only lasts a day or two. Won't hurt to discuss with your doctor though.
