Hi all,
I started Remicade on Tuesday.  Yesterday was a pretty good day actually until the middle of the night when I threw up the little I ate for dinner and now I just feel nervous and frustrated.  I haven't beeen able to eat in a few months now and I wonder when the throwing up will stop
Did anyone feel better but throw symptoms continue -- and for how long.

I have never thrown up on Remicade.  In the beginning I would feel better almost instantly.  After being on it for a few years it started to take a week or more before I felt better.  Just give it time, everyone is different.

I have only had 2 infusions so far but both times nausea lasted for about a week afterwards. The remicade patient pamphlet doesn't tell you that nausea and vomiting can be a side effect, but when I looked it up in the nursing drug book, it lists nausea and vomiting in italics which means it is the most common side effect. My Dr prescribed me phenergan. It works wonderfully.
