Drug Reactions

I'm just wondering if anyone who is currently on Remicade has ever had a reaction while taking other medications? I've been on Remicade for almost a 18 months but at my last infusion, I was only 10mg into the infusion when I became flushes, short of breath and ended up vomiting. Has anyone ever had a reaction like that?

Ds was on remicade for 8 months and had reaction
Next infusion they gave iv solumedrol with remicade and still reacted so remicade was stopped and humira was started

remicade is more likely to have an allergic reaction to since the body produces antibodies against the drug (made of mouse protein )
