@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 did both and the infusion worked much better for me.

@A myRAteam Member my doc told me with the infusion it could take up to 6 months to work.

I've since talked with my rheumy.... he said that the infusion normally takes 5 months to start having a noticeable change. Since I'm going to try and go back to work as well, we're going to use the sub q shot each week. He thinks it will kick in faster for me.
