I wondered if anyone knows what happens if you are on Remicade, but then decide to get pregnant. Are you supposed to stop the infusions when you get pregnant? I believe I remember hearing that you can't start Remicade back up if you've stopped it. If that's the case, can you start up another tnf blocker after you give birth?
