Hello All,
Question about Remicade for UC and sinus infections.  Been on Remicade only the loading dose with much improvement (very happy), however I now have a sinus infection.  Being treated with antibiotics to clear this up.  Has anyone had recurring sinus infections while on Remicade?  If so, how do you prevent the infection? 
I have summer allergies like grass, mold, treas in bloom, etc.  I am on a seroid nasal spray (that stays in the nose), but not sure what else to do.  Also with the Remicade I experience odd, yet noticable body muscle aches, not bad, but noticable.  I have mentioned it to the GI dr., but he was not too overly concerned at the time.  I will follow-up with the GI after my 4th infusion.  Any advise.
Diagnosed in 2004 proctitis, Aasocol, in 2005 left-sided UC more Aasocol and Rowasa, prednisone
switched to Lialda  then in 2009 2nd colonoscopy showed severe UC pancolitis, back on prednisone, rowasa started Remicade 6/23/2009, off prednisone, rowasa.
8/5/2009 Remicade infusions and 2 Lialda daily.
