I have had two orencia infusions so far and during the second one I started to feel really uncomfortable and almost felt like I was going to pass out. I also felt quite nauseous. Has anyone else experienced this? I have experienced extreme tiredness for the few days after treatment, almost like I have taken a sleeping pill. Will this continue?
I have been getting infusions for over a year and have never had this problem. I sometimes feel tired on my drive home (I have to drive 75 miles to get back home), but I usually attribute it to not getting enough sleep the night before. Possibly you need to make sure you have eaten well before your infusion to prevent a feeling of nausea? This is just my own experience with it.
