If you have moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis, the symptoms you experience may affect your ability to do everyday tasks, like getting dressed or taking your dog for a walk. Without proper treatment, the joint damage that may occur in the first few years of the condition could worsen over time.
REMICADE® has customized dosing based on your individual weight. Your doctor can also adjust your REMICADE® dose as your needs change based on your rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. If your REMICADE® dose has to be increased, it is important to talk with your doctor about the increased possibility of infections.
When given with methotrexate, REMICADE® can help provide quick symptom relief—in as few as 2 weeks for some people. REMICADE® can also go beyond the relief of
day-to-day symptoms like joint pain, stiffness, and swelling, and help stop the
progression of joint damage. Individual results may vary.
With REMICADE®, you may require treatment only once every 8 weeks—a 2-hour infusion given by a doctor or nurse—after 3 starter doses. That’s as few as 6 treatments a year.
