redface  I've been having remicade for about two years. I decided to try to push my remicade infusions further apart and waited thirteen weeks since my last infusion. I started with symptoms about a week before my scheduled infusion and just hoped that after the infusion I'd feel ok. It's been two days and I still have D and gas. Do you think I messed up by waiting too long. Or can it take a few days after Remicade to get my body back in shape?

Hi Sarabella, and welcome to HealingWell. I'm not sure if there would be a problem extending your time between infusions, but if you continue to have symptoms, make sure to get into your doc and let him know. He might be able to get you over the hump; sometimes rectal meds can help. Did you tell your doc that you were stretching out the infusion period? If not, you should tell him if there is a reason for it; that way he can help you prepare in case you start having symptoms in between. Again, welcome!
