BioSimilar Switch - Remicade to Inflectra

Hi All, got letter from childrens hospital that son will be switched from Remicade to BioSimilar Inflectra in coming months,

I know they should be same etc. anyone else been moved or taking longterm a biosimilar?
Hi I am on Inflectra since 2015, first every 8 weeks now every 4 weeks. I live in Greece where due to recession the hospitals change from remicade to Inflectra all the time.
When I was on Remicade a couple of years ago they switched me to Inflectra - never notice a single difference. Both worked equally.
