When I used to take Remicade, I would get pretty constipated, especially the first week after treatment or so. I used to eat whatever I wanted at the time and not get sick, resulting in a big weight gain! :( But if I would go too many days without going, I would take a suppository or enema. You could also try taking Miralax or Benefiber.
