It is not absolutely contraindicated regarding the drug interaction. However, I would advise you to discuss with rheumatologist who prescribes Remicade.

Skin test first: You may do skin test, i.e., inject a small amount of juvederm into axilla, to see if you have allergy to juvederm.

POSSIBLY YES: Centocor which makes Remicade (infliximab) does have an assistance program. Please see the Remicade (infliximab) website. Also, there are organizations such as patient advocate association which offer grants to patients that are in need of assitance. Talk with your rheumatologist's office.

Ask your docs!: This is when your rheumatologist and your oncologist need to talk! anti-ra drugs all increase the risk of certain cancers, so you will have to balance the risks. With RA we try to dampen the immune system, which makes you slightly more likely to develop cancer, particularly lymphoma. But you need to treat your ra! your two docs can educate each other and select the best drug for you.

Have any Crohn's disease patients out there had side effects after a remicade (infliximab) infusion?

Yes.: Infusion rxns are not uncommon. I favour Humira (adalimumab) which is given subcutaneously every two weeks. I have found side-effects much less, and is does not rquire a lengthy infusion and can be easily self-adminstered.
