feeling sick after infliximab

Had my fifth infliximab infusion this morning. They put it through in one hour instead of the normal two.

However, this evening I am feeling REALLY nauseous, cold and incredibly tired. The tiredness I am used to but have never had this sicky feeling before.

Anyone else experienced this? Is it because the infusion went in so quickly?

I don't take Infliximab, so can't help with your question but just wanted to say that I hope you're feeling better today, and nausea has gone away. Polly.


Any reaction like that should really be reported to the infusion centre, preferably as soon as possible. At the very least they need to record it, so they can do things differently next time, but you may also need to take something else to get you over the nausea.
