Wow...I'm pretty sure my dosing was 5mg/kg but I know how much also depends on your weight. They upped me to 10mg/kg when the 5 wasn't working. When that didn't work either I was done with it.
Hopefully someone will come along with more knowledge of Remicade. I was only on it a short time. It is made from a mouse protein. Your immune system can be compromised so you have to be careful not to expose yourself around sick people. I hope they explained to you all the risks of taking it for your knowledge as it is a very strong drug. I has been a miracle drug for many people. My mom is on it to treat her RA and it has done wonders for her.
DX UC - in 2005 when I was 37
Tried every drug-even Remicade-Tried diets-nothing worked-wanted my life back!
Step 1: J-pouch surgery (Laparoscopic restorative proctocolectomy w/ temporary diverting loop ileostomy) 6-25-10
Step 2: Take down surgery (Ileostomy reversal) 10/8/10
No more UC!!! Very happy with my results of this surgery-got my life back! :)
