Hi John, I have been on Remicade for over 2 years and no blockage. I am also in remission. I never heard of anybody getting a blockage while of Remicade.
Hi, I am teddybearweiser, I am a male.
I was diagnosed with crohns disease when i was admitted to the hospital
in 1992, in Jan of 1993 I was back in the hospital for surgery for my crohns. I had part of my right colon resectioned with ilecolonstomy.
 My GI doctor has me on Asacol, Dicyclomine,Imuran,Celebrex and Remicade. B-12 injection once a month.
My Internest doctor has me on Lisnopril-HTCZ and Folic Acid. Diagnosed
with Osteoarthritis July 2007

Yes it's possible to get a blockage or any of the usual symptoms of this disease while on Remicade, or any drug for that matter. Sometimes they just don't work for some people, or sometimes they work for a while then stop working. If you're having symptoms of a blockage please call your doctor and/or get to an ER.
