I've not done Remicade, but have had my share of colds while on prednisone and 6MP, so I know it's harder to get over. Though antibiotics don't treat a viral infection such as a cold, I usually get a secondary infection after a cold and have to go one antibiotics due to that. Having a good GP that's aware of the danger is key. If you have a pulmonologist for you emphysema, it wouldn't hurt to call and let him know what's going on. Get well soon. -Joy
