Is anyone currently taking or have been prescribed the IL-6 inhibitor biologic RA medication, Kevzara, the manufacturer is Sanofi? If so, is it working, how long did it take for you to notice that your disease seems to be getting under control, and did anyone notice any specific side effects. I'm currently taking the medication, and have 3 injections.
I've been on Kevzara injections for about 6 months and I have had GREAT luck so far. Before Kevzara, I was having 3 or more flareups every month with severe flares caused by stress. I began my injections 1 week before a knee replacement surgery in July and have not had a flare since. If I have side effects, I'm blissfully unaware of them (or blaming them on something else). I'm trying to convince dr. to wean me off Plaquinil and Methotrexate. Unable to take other meds for RA because of history of Multiple Sclerosis. All in all, I'm happy with Kevzara.
