I’ve experienced the same with Humira and embrel, my dr is trying me on orencia now and four months systhoms are better and no infections so far. Took a while to get insurance to approve but it seems to have been worth the wait. Hope you the best...

The doc tried me on it. I have a very touchy system that rejects meds a lot. So on the 3rd dose i started to feel awful. My head was spinning. I felt like throwing up. I left work and went home and thank god I did. By time I got home I was vomiting from dizzyness. Three hours later I could not move my eyes I was so dizzy and it would like me vomit. My husband spoke with my DR and she had him take me to the hospital where they gave me meds to stop the spinning. And they said it was the antibiotic. I stopped the meds and the next day I was fine... Its worth a shot. It doesnt work for eveyone but you might be one of the lucky ones!

I agree, everyone is different and different things work for different people. I myself don't take DMARDS or any Prednisone. I have been managing it for the past 2 yrs with healthy/gluten free diet,heavy supplementing and medical marijuana. I been able to manafe it with a few bumps on the road. @A myRAteam Member i hope that's all to it also and that all is well 😊. @A myRAteam Member insurance companies are a pain but I'm glad you got your medication.
