From this study (1 month ago):
I developed eye pain and redness while using the medicines recently.. I have had glaucoma for the last 5 years.. Could the use of any of these drugs make the condutions worse?
From this study (2 months ago):
Since I started Remicade in June27,2014 I have had episodes of severe pain after the infusion. The first one in July 5th had me hospitalized for five days because I couldn't do nothing. Walk, or use any of my extremities. After some other infusion I have had on and off pain between a day and a week after infusion that limit my movement for that day. Now my last infusion was on March 23 and on the 24th by night time I had so much pain in both my hands i could grab or move them much. Ordered Prednisone 20mg for a few days. Well it's been a week now and this morning I woke up at 2:00am with extreme pain in both knees had to start again prednisone. I think all this sickness has to do with the remicade.
From this study (3 months ago):
Muscle spasms and jerking getting worse. Having trouble sleeping due to anxiety over this.
