I’m Starting Orencia Injections. Any One With Positive Feedback Is Appreciated

I’m Starting Orencia Injections. Any One With Positive Feedback Is Appreciated

A myRAteam Member said:

I do Orencia injectables since last August with good results. No side effects. I did Orencia infusions for 10 years prior & switched to the injectables because I couldn’t get scheduled for my infusions when Covid hit. I prefer the injectables.

I was on Enbrel for a year and a half along with Otrexup. All of a sudden the Enbrel stopped working and the Otrexup was caisson a dry cough so my doctor switched me to Orencia. I have been on prednisone for six weeks now and hope the Orencia kicks in soon! Flare up is pretty bad even with prednisone. I take Tylenol arthritis too and that seems to help. Prayers too🙏
