Does Anyone Have Experience Wiht Renflexis Infusion?

I have had reactions to Methotrexate and Humira. The doctor ordered Remicade but the insurance denied and instead said I had to do Renflexis. I start this week with the infusion after being off treatment since Feb. Wondering if anyone knew of side effects. Thanks in advance.
