Has Anyone Had Success With Remicade Alone?

Has Anyone Had Success With Remicade Alone?

I was supposed to start Humira and have had an initial dose (Dr provided a sample). It began making a huge difference almost immediately. Now my insurance company has decided I have to first take Remicade infusions for 6 months before they will consider approving Humira. I cannot take methotrexate (liver panel was BAD) and I'm not taking anything else but Prednisone. I'm discontinuing Prednisone asap. Has anyone had success with Remicade alone? How about side effects?

I had side effects with both. Hope you find relief soon. It’s a journey trying to find what works. 🤗

They also have the co pay assistance for people who have insurance. You should try on the manufacturer's website

@A myRAteam Member I am aware of the patient assistance programs for the uninsured, but I do not want to tap into the fund that is set aside for those without insurance. I have insurance. It would be unfair and selfish of me to accept help that may result in others less fortunate not receiving the assistance they need because i helped myself to funds that I am really not entitled to.

I'm so sorry about your insurance. They can be about as much pain as RA. I have never taken Remicade but I may have to soon as the doctors are talking infusion therapy. I have taken Humira and I loved it. But I started having bad liver reports. Hope they can find their way to helping you. God bless
