I think the latest statistics I've seen are that about
50% of people who come off Remicade have adverse reactions that prevent them taking it when re-started. That said, remember that the other 50% don't. I had to go off for over a year due to insurance issues, and had no problems when I re-started it. Others have had.
So, like anything else with this DD, it's a definite "maybe."
