I am 26 years old and was diagonsed with Crohns disease 14 years ago. I have a 3 and 6 yr.old. I have been taking Remicade for over 2 yrs. now, I have a treatment every 4 wks at double the normal dosage. I have had 30 surgeries due to all types of complications; most of which are due to the Crohns. The infusions have helped me live at least 50% of a normal life.
Usually the treatments take about 3 hours. I haven't have many side effects, except: feeling tired and nauseous. I recommend you to ask your infusionist for ZOFRAN for nausea. It helps me alot.
