So, you’ve been prescribed an infusion medication. Maybe a Remicade infusion (infliximab) or Entyvio (vedolizumab)? Or one of the dozens of other infusion therapy medications. At this point, you may be feeling defeated because other treatments haven’t worked. You may be feeling optimistic or even cautiously excited that this may finally be the treatment for you. Either way, you are probably also feeling nervous, maybe even a little scared. After all, infusion therapy is new to you and may well be more invasive and carry more potential side effects than any other treatments you’ve had.
Hopefully, this post will help with some of that anxiety. I have lost count of the number of infusions I’ve had, and I’m here to walk you through the whole process.
