Is it worth it to go on biologics?

Go to Doc tomorrow talk about new meds. She had mentioned before maybe trying biologics. I’m terrified of the side effects I read. I know not everyone gets them but I’m pretty sensitive to mess though. However none of the meds so far have really worked. I have so many things I want to do in life that I need to be functional and mobile. I dont need to be nauseous and dizzy, don’t need any more headaches, don’t want to have sore throats, I have bad sinus already. I can’t deal with… read more

I know how scary it is.... Especially when you have to sign a waver stating death could happen.... Humeria was hard on me for the first 2 months.... Sores in mouth,body hurt but then it got OK on the 3 month....i was on it for 4 yrs then it stopped working.... Now on Embro and very little side effects.... All in all I'd do it again because does work

💖thank you. I hope you continue to do well. I definitely need to ask about hair loss. My meds are already doing that. 😩 We shall see what my insurance says. Thank you so much. I noticed everyone for the most part said biologics help. If I can get it covered and my cost isn’t bad then maybe I’ll give it a try

When I was put on biologics I was scared too. I was bed ridden and wanted to do anything to walk again. I had to switch 3 times but finally found one that my body responded well too. It takes months to know for sure, but if you have any side effects, you will know e as early on. Let your Provider know immediately if you h as very any. It was not an option for me to NOT try it. I can do just about anything a normal person can and it was worth any side effects to find one that would help me have less pain and more mobility. It's a personal choice. But if you get a cold, virus, uti, or anything b/c your immune system is weak to non existant... get to a doctor fast to stay on top of symptoms. It takes me 3-4 times longer to fight off any colds or viruses. But I stay vigilant on my health. You are your best advocate!

I’m on my 4th biologics with no significant side effects. Never got sick. They just didn’t work. Everyone is different but don’t be afraid
