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.

I have just started treatment-two weeks ago, and have developed thoughts of hurting myself. I haven't spoken to my MD yet-but the pain is still as bad if not worse.

It is an inconvenient process in that you must spend so much time at the doctor's office.
