Does a double dose take longer to infuse?

Hi everyone,

I am now going on to a 10mg/kg Remicade dose vs my previous 5mg/kg and was curious if it would take longer to infuse due to the increase amount of Remicade or if they speed up the iv.

(Background: After my induction (which I had no response to)I went to 5mg/kg every 4 weeks. After 2 four week doses we were going to try to stretch to 8 but on week 3 I was getting symptoms again. )

Thanks!
