@A myRAteam Member did your doctor say how much sooner he thinks the injections might kick in? My doctor never really said. I'm starting to get a little discouraged that it hasn't started working. Maybe it will over the next couple months

I've been taking the orencia injections for almost two months. So far I've had no noticeable improvement. But no side effects either

I tried injection and infusion. Infusion works better for me but it gets me really tiered so I go to sleep once I get home. I don't plan on anything that day cause of that reason. At times it doesn't help when I'm in a really bad flare I have to go to the ER for pain meds. I cry 😱 scream but like everyone else I wait up to 8 hours before I'm seen . Times when they call me I'm in the restroom with the lights off throwing up. I have sever headaches too. But everyone is diffrent I have been on it for almost 2 years

I’ve been on self injection, but I’d rather have Remicade Infusion, which my insurance won’t pay for. It’s the best thing ever. These medications are so expensive, even the pill for RA.
