I stopped Remicade due to allergic reactions and lose of response and now that I have exhausted all of my other options to treat both the Crohn's and arthritis, my GI has suggested going back on Remicade. I voiced my concern and he said some people are able to do it successfully. I asked my rheumy about
it and she acted like it was not a good idea and too much of a risk, since I'd had allergic reactions to it. Everything I find online about
it says you are more likely to react to it the second time around, but I think there has been some people who handle it just fine. I'm not willing to take the risk, since I already had reactions, but I would be willing to try it if I hadn't had the reactions.
