It has been awhile since I have been on the forum.
I am back again with questions surrounding remicade use and pregnancy as well as breastfeeding while having remicade infusions.
I am 25 years old and have been on remicade for approx. 3 years. It has been a miracle drug for me and has given me my life back. I have been symptom free for 3 years and have not had one flare up.
I am getting married in 3 weeks and we would like to start a family shortly after since I am feelong great.
My GI specialist has advised me that I should stay on Remicade during the pregnancy....This scares me....so I made an appt. with an OB to see what they would say....they too agreed that it would be wise for me to continue the remicade, because if I were to go off it and flare up there would be more of a risk to myself and the baby.
Can any other moms give me some advice on this???? as well I have heard mixed messages as to whether you can breastfeed or not??
Thanks again everyone
