Remicade Question

Hey all.

I have my first Remicade infusion today. Yay! However, it also happens to be the first day of that time of the month and I'm in a quite a bit of a pain due to cramping. Can I take a painkiller or will that cause issues with the infusion?
Diagnosed: November 2008
Currently: Flaring
Current Treatments: 6MP, Entocort, Omeprazole
Past Treatments: Prednisone (temporary success), Pentasa (failed), Imuran (failed), Remicade (success - lost insurance coverage)

I'm looking at possibly going on this treatment, I'm already on fioricet for tension headaches..it's butalbital, acetaminophen, caffeine....wonder if that would be a problem with it. My GI didn't say a thing about it, but he's more pushing more for me to have surgery.....I'd LOVE a drug that actually put me into remission without having to have surgery.
