Reply to "Potential risk with Remicade?"

If you have had prior exposure to Remicade, you should be tested for antibodies before starting. If you have antibodies, you may be more prone to a reaction or be less likely to respond to treatment (antibodies block the action). I have been on Remicade for several years without issues. They give me Tylenol, Clariten and IV steroid before each infusion to prevent reactions.
