I started getting a cold about
1 week before my last Remicade infusion. I loaded up on Zicam and was fine in a few days. The Remicade didn't seem to make the cold worse or last longer. It was my first cold since starting Remicade in Feb 08. My daughter has been sick twice and my husband very sick once and I didn't catch anything. Zicam works wonders for me.
