Does Remicade IV affect memory, cause weight gain or cause hair loss?

Answer

I checked the list of side effects in a couple places and didn't find any mentions of these kind of side effects. Remicade is a biologic medication and my experience, these drugs can cause a little bit of mental fuzziness for a day or so after the dose, along with fatigue and possible light flu-like symptoms. However, nothing long-termor permanent seems to be indicated.
