Do you get hydrocortisone premed w/ REMICADE?

My son has always got hydrocortisone pre remicade infusion. His new doctor wrote an order for tylenol and benadryl but no steroid. I am curious if you guys
get hydrocortisone or another IV steroid prior to the remicade infusion.

[The nurse said the doctor doesn't use steroids but the doctor said he always does. I read an article from 2003 that said hydrocortisone premed decreased the development of antibodies to Remicade. In any case, my son now has the order...]
