17 Jun 2015 I started taking remicade in Feb. it has done nothing to help with my ulcerative colitis. Approximately 3 weeks ago, I had a stronger dose. Five days after that I started experiencing weakness in my hands. I currently don't have the use of my thumb and forefinger. Is there any hope that I will get the strength back? Is there some kind of detox that I can do to rid my body of the remicade?

23 Aug 2013 Remicade has ben steadily making things tolerable. It has releaved the terrible stomach cramps. Been taking 5 mg. infusions, starting 10 mgs. next infusion as symptoms return inbetween infusions. Do wish it wasnt so expensive!

22 Apr 2012 I have had severe mental problems while using Remicade. Please consider that there is a chance that you will have these side effects as well when you start using this drug.
