Problems With Infliximab

Infliximab (Remicade®) is a prescription drug used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. In clinical studies, infliximab was associated with problems such as:
 
  • Infections
  • Anemia
  • Headaches
  • "Infusion reactions" (fever, chills, or other effects that happen while the drug is given intravenously).
     
Certain side effects of infliximab are potentially serious and should be reported to your healthcare provider right away. These include allergic reactions, dark urine, and difficulty breathing.
