I have just completed my 4th treatment due to RA. The side effects that I have had are severe headaches, nausea, dirreaha but has aggravated the Reynaud's and increased sweating. I have seen a marked improvement in my RA as I am able to have more activity and I have more function in my hands.

I am on my 4th treatment of Remicade I felt somewhat painless free for about 4 days. Then the pain came back full force esp. my right hip and all the way down my leg matter what med's or patches I use I cannot be pain free. I am considering not continuing my treatment. And it is very expensive $18,000 so far.

I used Remicade for 4 years with outstanding results. At the start of my fifth year, I had a severe allergic reaction to the infusion and had to discontinue. I switched to Orencia for 8 months with terrible results. I've now switched to Humira with high hopes.
