Travel to Spain while on Remicade

Within the next two years I’m hoping to walk part of the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain. The walk itself will be a challenge, but the bigger challenge may be getting my Remicade infusion while there. We will be there more than 8 weeks, so timing travel between infusions won’t work. Has anyone traveled internationally while on infused medication?

  1. Hi . What a fantastic adventure! I am so excited for you. I have not dealt with infusions while overseas, but I hope you get some input from the community. You might want to contact the U.S. Embassy there for more information. They might be able to help. I hope you will post with some photos after your trip. Best wishes! - Lori (Team Member)

One person mentioned consulting with your doctor, if you haven't already: https://www.facebook.com/PsoriaticArthritisDotCom/posts/pfbid0ehpMsKjW3X3Rkh6L63VBZdqEXLgpZ99Q3N2egH84z7ZAKwt7PVFWdXvr2uuLUneal.

      1. I would speak with your insurance and your rheumatologist. I went to Spain for a month this summer, (injectable medications) and was very pleased with the available healthcare.
