I have/had pretty significant allergies my entire life. My sneezing fits shocked people by their length. My trips to the hospital for asthma related episodes put me on the "frequent flyer list."
Fast forward onto Remicade and imuran....my allergies and asthma attacks DISAPPEARED!!! After my loading doses of Remicade, I no longer needed to use three different inhalers a day. I reduced my oral asthma meds in half. Have not had one asthma attack since beginning the biologic meds. I stopped sneezing which everyone noticed. No longer needed Claritin or Benadryl.
My GI and rheumy both said that my response is pretty typical, that people with allergies and asthma see a big improvement from Remicade.
