I took Remicade for UC and it actually caused psoriasis. Since Remicade is used to treat psoriasis, this is called paradoxical psoriasis. It is one of the reasons why I discontinued Remicade for treatment of my UC.

Dx UC 2004

Previous meds: VSL#3, Asacol, Asacol HD, Colazal, Rowasa, Pentasa, Canasa, Cortifoam, Cipro, Flagyl, 6MP, Humira, Remicade, Prednisone, IV Steroids (Solu-Medrol and Prednisolone)

Hospitalized several times for UC flares, received blood transfusions every time, average stay ~6 days

Completed step 1 J-Pouch on 8/31/15. So far, so good!

I am taking remicade for Psoriatic arthritis, but it has also cleared up my psoriasis which I suffered from for 40 years. It is great to have clear skin and no flaking!! It has also helped control the psoriatic arthritis. I have been taking it for almost 5 years along with methotrexate.

Does anyone know if Remicade is available in Mexico and if so, where? I am moving to Cozumel in January and will take Mexican insurance. Need to know the costs and availability for this drug that I now take.
