I will likely be starting on remicade in a few weeks. Since it suppresses the immune system, is there any danger in taking supplements/herbals that support the immune and other systems during treatment?
Is anyone currently taking Remicade with success and also supplementing? If so, what do you take and how is it working for you?
I currently take Pentasa, Vit. D, fish oil, Osteo-biflex, Mobic (prescription anti-inflammatory for arthritis/swollen foot and knees), a multi-vitamin and turmeric. I am considering adding Cat's Claw, but recall reading somewhere that taking Cat's Claw when on an immunosuppressant/modulator is not advisable.
