Problems With Remicade

In most cases, Remicade® (infliximab) is a safe and effective treatment for ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions. However, problems with Remicade can occur during treatment. In clinical studies, the most common side effects included:
 
  • Headaches
  • Anemia
  • "Infusion reactions" (fever, chills, or other reactions that occur while the drug is administered intravenously)
  • Infections.
 
Serious side effects are also possible; however, they occur less frequently. If you develop low blood pressure, unexplained bleeding, or difficulty breathing, seek immediate medical attention.
 
Liver problems, including liver failure and hepatitis, can also be caused by Remicade. Let your healthcare provider know if you have any signs of liver damage, such as:
 
  • Dark urine
  • Upper abdominal pain (stomach pain)
  • Yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes (jaundice).
