do they still give you your remicade if you have a bad cold?

If you've had a fever, infection or been on antibiotics within 10 days of your treatment you won't be able to get it. At least that is how it is at my hospital.

my docs are a little more laid back about it, for better or worse. I'm almost always a little sick when I'm due for my remicade... it's a pattern that I can't seem to break. Every time that I'm due for it, I end up with sniffles or a cough a few days before, but they always give it to me. They do always check to make sure that I don't have a fever, and as long as I pass that test, they juice me up.

My docs won't. They push back my treatment a few days to a week.
