You might stop the 6-MP first, and that doesn't require a taper. My GI took all of his Remicade patients off immunosuppressants due to the very small increase in lymphoma seen in people taking both.
As far as the Remi, I started out getting the induction series, then had to stop due to insurance issues. It kept me quite a bit better for about
a year. I was also lucky enough to be able to re-start it 18 months later, but not everyone is able to tolerate Remi after they've once stopped taking it.
