I just tried Actemra about a month ago. It did make me nauseated and actually caused swelling in my joints, especially my hands. Hope it works for you.
Thank you! I’m off all RA meds because of upcoming surgery. Boy do I notice it. Hope to get back on soon!!
Hey there! I didn't take infusions of Actemra but I did take the injections. I really liked Actemra—I didn't experience any weird side effects from it and it worked so well (like, incredibly quickly and effectively). The only downside is that it can do a number on your liver, like many of these drugs. I ended up going off of it because my liver levels were "borderline." However, I had been living in Scotland and drinking a lot of whisky at the time so it could have been from that...also, everyone is different so I wouldn't worry too much about that. The main thing to do is just keep up with your labs and monitor your liver. I hope that helps! Good luck!
