First Remicade treatment. Here is hoping!

Did my first treatment with Remicade. A little tired and have a minor sore throat. Is that normal. I can't wait to feel better. I haven't been to the gym since December. Not that it is a good excuse but would like to feel better.

Many people have a quick response to remicade. My son's first treatment took about 3 days for obvious improvement. But other people don't see improvement until after the first 3 loading doses.

I think it's normal to feel tired - especially if they premedicated you with benadryl which is standard practice. The sore throat - my son hasn't ever had that. Maybe the clinic air was dryer than you are used to or you are a little dehydrated?

Hope you feel fabulous soon.
