For me, it worked after the second infusion. For some it works right away, others have three or four infusions before they can really tell a difference.
For me, 2 1/2 years, longer for others. Some people have regular small flares, for others it doesn't work at all.
The side effects are all published; I have had none except for a pleasant tiredness the day of the infusion.
