MICHAEL F CARROLL on May, 17, 2012:
I am a 69 year-old male with ankylosing spondilytis. I have treated with Enbrel and Humira, but they are not covered by Medicare. I have found the Remicade results to be better, but the infusion is, of course, inconvenient. I have been on infusion for at least 3 years. During the last 3 infusions, I experienced some mild anaphylaxis - itchy, hive like feeling - that occurred shortly after they increased the drip for the second time. Last night, I had a much stronger reaction - nasal congestion, explosive bowel movement, chills, shivering, painful muscle cramps throughout my body, and difficulty breathing. A hot of bendryl stopped the reaction. My infusion has been taking 4 hours, and following event, doctor advised to take benadryl for 3 days before infusion and to extend infusion to 6 hours.
