Infliximab Injections

Infliximab (Remicade®) is a prescription drug used to relieve symptoms of Crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and many other inflammatory conditions. Each dose is given through an intravenous injection (by IV). You can receive the injections of infliximab at your healthcare provider's office or at an infusion center.
 
Your healthcare provider will determine your exact dosage based on the condition being treated, your weight, and other factors. It will take a minimum of two hours to administer each dose. If you are using infliximab for rheumatoid arthritis, the medicine is intended to be used with methotrexate, a medication that can be taken either by mouth or by injection.
