I knew that about
Tylenol too....I always assumed it was from high doses. I think it's fairly common knowledge, re. acetaminophen. I wonder if it is from the latent tb cases, why remicade is on that list. Or it could also be that being on an immune suppressant
open one up to a host of other opportunistic infections? Who knows... I suppose some digging coudl turn up the answers, what exactly those Remicade deaths were attributed too. Heck, maybe your GI could even tell you! Suffice to say, the drugs that many of us take are scary- this piece of info is basically why I decided not to try Humira. Bouncing from one drug to another to another...at some point, you have to say "enough!". I find for myself also, I tend to overlook any/all potential dangers with these drugs, & just think of the potential good results. My GI has always told me that these types of drugs, the immune suppressants, carry their own set of potentially serious side effects, & while I believed him, I just never gave it the weight that it deserves. It comes down to the age old question, which is worse, the disease or the "cure"?
here is the actual study/ article- interesting.
