Just wondering if your on remicade if they put you on an immune modulator like methotrexate with it?? I started remicade when it was very new and was on it for about 3 years then developed an allergy to it, had hives, tachycardia, trouble breathing. They did the test to see if I have antibodies against remicade and I know do, so needless to say cant take it anymore. My GI said that they need to have people on an immune modulator with the remicade so that you dont develop the antibodies, so I am just curious others experiences.

Well Like you I had been taking Remicade if for some time and developed a severe Allergic reaction. The only thing I was taking the night before the infusion was Singular an allergy med. but I had been on Imuran for years before that and it still didn't do anything for me. Too bad because Remicade was my *WONDER* Drug...I tried Humira because it is different and that didn't do anything for me at all.....
