Infusion reaction and next steps

I just had my fourth Remicade infusion today (first of the 8 week grouping) and I had a severe reaction. Has anyone else experienced this? What medication did you switch to? Did it help?

    Yes, they gave me Benadryl as usual before the infusion. About 30-45 minutes in I developed hives and my throat started to close up. Luckily the nurses reacted very fast and stopped the infusion and gave me medication to stop the reaction.

    What was your reaction? Did you take benadryl with the infusion?
