I am on remicade 400mg. infusion every 6 weeks ,10mg. arava,7mg.prednisone,seems like it works good until I get to the 4th week,pain and swelling in hands and feet,etc,hands are deforming,and.toes are curling on rt. foot,feels so good after the infusion,they went up from it would only last 2 weeks to 400mg. is this normal,I do work hard with my hands, they cannot go up any more as I am 155lbs. is this from working full time,they raised arava to 20mg. until my blood pressure went thru the roof,drop to 10mg. any answers would be gratefull.....
