The experience I have had with taking this drug has given me back parts of my life that I thought were lost forever. I am able to do the simple things with ease such as getting out of bed. In taking Remicade I feel like my life has been given back to me again.

My husband was diagnosed in July, 2000 at the young age of 25. He was never denied SSDI because of the severity of his disease. He tried alternative treatments, such as pednisone, methotrexate, NSAIDS etc, just to name a few. Within the first few treatments of Remicade, my husband showed significant improvement. He has had well over 50 treatments, and is walking!! Personally, Remicade is a miracle drug! I am a Registered Nurse and have come across many people with arthritis in my time. But to this day, I swear by Remicade, and have even recommended it to my own family members and friends.

Until I swtiched to Humira a few months ago, Remicade worked wonders for me. I never had an adverse effect from it. My experience was pleasant even though it required a trip to the hospital. I will use it again if I need it.

Treatment was easy and the Remicade along with methotextrate had been great until after feeling flu'ish for a few days becomming extremely short of breath. Several days in the hospital confirmed that my heart is fine, however I have severe fibrosis on both lungs. I went from an active 66 year old man to one requiring oxygen 24 hrs a day...overnight. Dr. is planning to continue with remicade and will re-introduce the methotrexate which they stopped I first became sick. What caused the accute fibrosis...the Rheumatoid arthritis, the methotrexate or the remicade... We'll never know, will we?

I had been on steroids for 7 years, and this is the first time I have been off of them, this drug has saved my life!! I am not a fan of IV drugs due to the fact that my veins are shot from steroids, so now I have a port-a-cath, but it's still worth it! I truly believe I have my life back thanks to Remicade!! Don't put it off if you are thinking about trying it.

I have been on remicade for almost 6 years. I started on it when I was 16, after having Crohn's disease and severe Ulcerative Colitis since the age of 14. At the start of it, I was 5'0" and 77 lbs, my menstrual cycle had stopped,almost all my hair had fallen out and I was being cared for 24 hours a day. Within 1 year, I weighed 110 lbs, grew 2 inches, went back to school, my hair had grown back nicely. Also, my cycle returned to normal. I love this drug!! It has given me my life back...
