I am supposed to start this drug because I have Psoriatic Arthritis and I'm currently taking Methotrexate. The Methotrexate has gotten rid of most of my joint pain, but I have 3 toes that are still swollen and it is not helping with reducing the swelling at all. My doctor wants to start me on the Remicade to get rid of the swelling in my toes.

Have been on methotrexate shots for several years. They make me nauseas, but only for a few minutes. The top of my head hair thinned and itches. I have been on an infusion of Remicade about a year and have had only a slightly increased loss of hair on the top of my head. No other side effects. The Remicade has helped control my swelling, but I might try adding something to increase the circulation in your feet, warm soaks, cool packs, gentle foot messages might help & they feel good.
