No I haven't. I have been amazingly healthy since starting on remicade two years ago. Is it common or rare to have such a reaction?

I have been experiencing PVCs for several months now, and have been taking Remicade since September, but my PVCs may have started before that. I've cut way back on caffeine, which is supposed to help, but they are still occurring with some regularity.
Another symptom I've been experiencing is a shortness of breath, like I need to yawn but can't. My PCP is thinking the PVCs and this breathlessness may be related. No one so far thinks there is a link between my PVCs and Remicade, however. I'm seeing a cardiologist tomorrow, so we'll see what that reveals. Good luck, and stay well!
My heart has been racing since starting on Remicade - I'm also experiencing muscle spasms so severe I cannot carry anything with my hands - the hot flashes are so severe I take two to three cool showers daily - I hate the heart palpitations since I've already had one heart attack (mild) at age 40
I have been taking remicade for over a year. I experience PVC occassionally, but at my age it may be part of the aging process and not the medication, age 67.
