I have a Remicade infusion in the AM and dental fillings in the PM on the July 1.  I can't think that there would be any problems with having these the same day...  Can anyone else think of any complications?

Hmm, I don't know but I would definitely bring it up to either your doctor or dentist. Good luck though! I was never afraid of the dentist until a recent horrible experience with a dentist I'll never go to again, and now just thinking about getting fillings (or getting the ones fixed that he did a crappy job on and they cracked a month later) I get anxious and nauseous! Now I'm officially in the dentist-phobia club! Haha

Hmm, I would ask your GI and/or dentist to double check. I remember on 6MP's drug information, it said to tell your dentist that you're taking it, but I don't know if that's the case for Remi
