Remicade IV Infusion

Remicade® (infliximab) is a prescription drug used to treat a number of conditions, including ankylosing spondylitis and Crohn's disease. It is given intravenously. In most cases, each dose of Remicade will take at least two hours to administer. These intravenous (IV) infusions of Remicade are usually given at your healthcare provider's office or an infusion center designed for people who need regular IV medications.
 
Depending on the condition being treated, the infusions are usually given more frequently at the beginning of the treatment, then followed by doses every six to eight weeks. The specific dose your healthcare provider recommends will depend on your age, weight, and other factors.
