How Long Does It Take For Remicade To Work?

I have had 2 infusions, the last one was Tuesday. I felt energized yesterday, bottoms of my feet didn't hurt as bad, and was able to go on a long walk with my husband and dog. Today, the foot pain is back with a vengeance and I have swelling in my joints again. Do I just need to be patient or will this be just like enbrel was for me--take it for 4 months with no results?

Answer

Hi, Krista,

It is hard to say if this is going to be the drug for you. I have a friend who has Remicade Infusions every 60 days. She told me that the infusions started working fairly soon, like after the third infusion. This drug has given my friend her life back. I hope it works for you, too. I know it is hard to be patient. Hope you see some results soon!

Blessings,

V
