Infliximab is injected in order to treat certain autoimmune disorders. It is most often used for rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis, although it may also be prescribed for psoriasis, Chron’s disease, ulcerative colitis or ankylosing spondylitis. This medication stops a substance called TNF-alpha from working in order to decrease inflammation.

Side Effects/Warnings

This medication can suppress immune system functioning, causing serious infections that may require hospitalization. Patients who are carriers of tuberculosis or hepatitis B are at greater risk for infection than other patients who take this medication. You should see your doctor as soon as possible if you have any signs of infection such as fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, sore throat or recurrent cold sores.
