  • Remicade changed my life. Before I started it, I was in constant pain and had a difficult time getting out of a chair or turning over in bed. Now I have only minor pain and live a full and happy life.

    Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Got up from the first infusion a changed woman. The 3+ hour infusion gives me a chance to catch up on reading or take a nap. I actually look forward to the interlude. I can adjust the timing of the infusions to correspond with the weather.

    Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Been on infliximab infusions for 11years. I have Crohns as well as A.S within weeks I no longer needed walking sticks and was able to start tolerating solid food again. Now have very few flare ups last one 2 years ago. the benefits I have gotten from it a little inconvenience once every 8 weeks for the infusion is nothing. Docs where talking about colostomy bags and wheelchairs before the option to go on the trials for this drug came about now I have my life back.

    Crohn's disease (moderate to severe)
  • Had 2 reactions at first but learned taking Prednisone 10 days at infusion time corrected that problem. Been on it 11 years.in remission, best I ever felt!

    Crohn's disease (fistulizing)
  • I've had an extremely positive experience on Remicade. That said, I'd recommend not letting 'horror stories' keep you away from this drug, as most of them are based on allergic reactions and how well this treatment works outweighs initial risks. Make sure to take the day off for infusion days. I usually end up groggy and nap the rest of the day, so scheduling around infusions isn't something I'd recommend!

  • You'll probably sleep during the infusion but bring a book or magazine just incase. I get really itchy after so I take Benadryl for a few days after too (they also provide it before the infusion)

    Ulcerative colitis (moderate to severe)
  • I was on Humira for 2 years and could never get back to feeling 100%. As soon as I started Remicade I have felt better than I have in years.
