I'll update that after the fourth loading dose I stopped having side-effects. I thought I was seeing some improvement, though I think it may have just been a lull. The bigger issue for me has been the long half-life, which is preventing me from having surgery and making me feel a little trapped. I suppose there's some possibility, too, that it is the cause of my current heart-rate issues. I'll find out more about that after wearing a monitor next week. On the positive, I have really been impressed by their customer care. They have bent over backward to get me samples while insurance approval was going through, and their financial program is far easier than Remicade's.
I'm sorry to hear about the MS diagnosis, Karen. Do they think Remicade brought it on? I seem to recall that was one of the things included in the frightening "black box" warning.
