Reply to "Remicade"

CT has had really good luck with Remicade; I did not.  I had a reaction to it.  That doesn't mean you shouldn't try it, but I do suggest you take a few precautions in case you do find yourself having a bad reaction. One, take someone with you during the infusion - a designated driver of sorts. This will keep you safer on the road home if you have an issue.  Two, the actual infusion takes two hours, plus add time for them to mix the medicine - so you could be at the infusion center up to three hours.  If you have any discomfort or strange feelings, tell the nurse who is doing the infusion.  They know what to do and sooner is usually better than waiting if you're not feeling well. (Yep, I learned both these things the hard way!)

I was switched to Entyvio following my bad experience with Remicade and so far I've remained reaction free and it is helping to decrease my inflammation.   Different people react differently to different medicines.  Give Remicade a try and you can always change if things are not working.

Take a risk and see what happens.  You may find yourself feeling better than you have in years.
