Remicade Drug Interactions

Live Vaccines
Live vaccines are immunizations that contain live viruses or bacteria. If you receive a live vaccine while taking Remicade, you might become infected with the virus or bacteria from the vaccine. Also, Remicade can make live vaccines less effective. You should not receive live vaccinations while taking this drug.
 
Mercaptopurine
There have been reports of a very aggressive and fatal form of cancer known as hepatosplenic T-cell lymphoma in people who took Remicade with mercaptopurine, especially in young males being treated for Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis. You and your healthcare provider should carefully discuss this risk before combining these two medications.
  
Tocilizumab
Combining Remicade with tocilizumab may increase your risk of infection. In general, the combination of these two should be avoided.
