I've been on Remi for two years, in a consistant good remission. I've had one cold in that time, and I recently had a periodontal infection. No other infections since starting. And I work with people who are around preschool children all the time and have a lot of colds, "flu" etc. I've had no side effects other than mild tiredness the day after. And like Carol, I actually find the infusion very relaxing.
Hope it is as successful for you as it has been for some of the rest of us.
