Remicade vs. Inflectra?


Tue, February 02, 2021 5:11 AM

J pouch 22 years after UC diagnosis. Healthy ever since with few bouts of pouchitis. After 2 recent sigmoidoscopies, with ineffective 5-ASA and enema steroids in b/w, now suspected of having Chrohn’s and being recommended for biologic treatment.

Question is Remicade vs. Inflectra? The later my Dr. says is the same (besides cost) but I read may have different side effects? 

Also anyone ever take one of those meds and also in combo with Azathioprine (Imuran)?
