I just had my third Remicade treatment this past Thursday. I had a small reaction to the Benedryl during it, but no reaction to the Remicade at all. However, the next day my stomach started reacting terrible! I've been having pain with D and little appetite since Friday evening. I remember this happening after my last infusion, but I don't remember how long it lasted. Do any of you who are on Remicade have a similar reaction after your infusions?

Hi tricknikki,
I have been on Remicade over 2 years and have no problems or side effects. Could your
stomach pain be from the Benedryl? I don't use Benedryl. I take tylenol and claritin 1 hour before
my infusion.

I would try it again without the benedryl and see if you have the same thing happen.

Hi No I don't get pains but usually I do have a good cleaning out my fourth one was double meds so I really had a good cleaning out the only thing I could think of is see how you feel in a day or so hopefully it will get better. I also go the low roughage diet which keeps pain away. Feel better soon and glad the IV went pretty good for you. Always nice to get those three loading doses done with. lol gail
