More Remicade questions

I had my first Remicade treatment on Friday. No reactions. Yea!!!!!!

I felt absolutely fantastic on Saturday and good on Sunday. By Monday the fatique and joint pain started coming back. Today, it's just like it was before.

The question I have is will the Remicade stay in my system longer once I have the initial three treatments or is this all I'm going to get?

Yeah - my nurses said that it usually takes until the 3rd or 4th infusion to really fully kick in. I guess the maybe loading doses are closer together for that reason?
Congrats on your 1st dose!!
