How long does it take to respond? Is is ok that I have not responded 5 days after my second infusion? Please excuse redundant post.

when i first started it tool about 6 weeks or so to start feeling better and then a lot longer after that to get back into good condition. but i was a very sever case too so it depends on each person.

Hi it could take up to 3 infusions to notice anything. I have been on Remicade for over 2 years and
it has really helped me. I am also am enjoying being in remission. I hope Remicade works wonders for you.
