Remicade & cough

Diagnosed w/ Crohn's disease 09/2018 & have been hospitalized twice due to flare ups. I've had two Remicade infusions 11/2 (500 MG) & 11/14 (1100 MG). My third one is scheduled for 12/17. I've been on 40 MG of Prednisone since September. Developed a pretty nasty cough this week...could this be a side effect of Remicade? Can I have my third infusion w/ it?

My son is on remicade and developed a cough for a few months starting last spring. Doc was concerned about possible valley fever since we live close to the desert but it eventually went away on its own. If yours persists I would get checked by you primary MD.

thanks for your reply, ending up going to see my primary care today - I have bronchitis. Starting some new meds tonight to hopefully knock it out quickly!
