Has Remicade affected your motivation or mood?

The title says it all. I am interested in knowing if you think this medication has had any psychologic affect on you, specifically on motivation or mood. If so,
was it a positive affect or a negative affect.

Thanks!

Remicade hasn't changed my mood either way in the last year on a half on it.

Well, before my husband started remicade, he was in a massive flare. So he was pretty much sleeping all the time or crying out in pain. 3 days after the 1st infusion, he suddenly got a bout of energy, his appetite back and showed all the signs of being my normal man like before. So I would say Remicade has had a positive effect on our moods and lives so far. Fingers crossed! I hope this helps what you ask and hope your kid feels better soon
