Muscle Pain On Rinvoq?

Muscle Pain On Rinvoq?

I'm on my third week trialing Rinvoq and am having some nasty muscle pain. My calves are so sore that I'm really hobbling. I've been wearing good, supportive shoes, no unusual activity, and I drink plenty of water. The only new thing is the Rinvoq. I googled and muscle soreness was mentioned. Anyone else experience this, and if so how did you get rid of it??

My Rheumatologist is putting me on Rinvoq too. I haven't started it yet. Is anyone doing well on it? I see 2 people are having problems. How long have you been on it? Did the Dr say the side effects go away? Is this a medication I should avoid? If so are there any suggestions on what works? I have been on methotrexate, humira and latest orencia. For inflammation leflunomide. My inflammation is still high and my RA painful and stiff. So that why the change to Rinvoq. Any advice or suggestions welcome. I've had RA for 21 years now. I went a longtime with no Dr.

Hooray4RA, yes, absolutely! I've gone on all the websites for the medication I'm on that doesn't have a generic. Even my Eliquis has a discount card/program that has saved me considerably. I work in Radiology. Since I need to know my patients medical history for my modality, I often suggest the manufacturers websites to help them out. All of the Biologics I've been on (tried) have discount programs.

Rinvoq has a program that will cover almost all of the cost of your medication. Just call 1.800.2RINVOQ

@A myRAteam Member are you feeling any difference yet? I'm not seeing much relief, although I know it's early. I've switched my dose to evening due to nausea, but I'm also having cold-type symptoms and a cough. Not a fan so far.

Thanks. If Cimzia doesn't work my Dr is thinking Rinvoq. It will also depend on if it is covered. I'm on SS and Medicare wont cover PO meds.wS on IV meds past few years. Any info on rinvoq is welcome.
