Thanks for sharing!
Any of the medications we take can have awful side effects. I certainly didn't set out to start on Remicade - however, prednisone was taking away my life and there weren't other options beside surgery which I wasn't ready for. These are not drugs to be taken lightly and need to be used under strict supervision by a medical doctor. Those who Remicade has given back quality of life are aware of those side effects and are willing to use the drug anyway because it has given them back their life...
