I have been on Remicade for four years but recently increased from every 8 weeks to every 6 weeks due to a recent flare. I also take Imuran and just finished a two-month prednisone taper (due to the flare). This last week I was diagnosed with shingles. It started with swollen lymph nodes and pain, then the rash developed. It was miserable. I ended up in the hospital and the doctors there said I likely got it because I am immune suppressed from the medications. Anyone else experience shingles while on Remicade? I do see my GI doc tomorrow to get his take on things.
