I was in pretty bad shape when I started Remicade, but I saw definite improvement after the loading doses (actually saw improvement almost right away), but I had lingering symptoms for a long time and we kept adjusting the dose and frequency (see my signature). I finally feel like I am in a good place but it took much longer for me than it does most people. Even with the lingering symptoms I was sooooo much better than when I started I could have lived with it like that. I am older and had already failed 2 other biologics so I didn't give up on it.
I think most people do just fine on an 8 week schedule, but keep in mind that dosing and frequency can be adjusted if you need to.
