Does Anyone Take Rinvoq For RA?

Does Anyone Take Rinvoq For RA?

I have been on Rinvoq for almost 5 weeks. The RA pain is better, but the medication is making me tired, like I can't function. I don't know which is worst the brain fog or pain. This is my 5th medication and it seems all of them give brain fog and tiredness, to me this is not quality of life.

Pamela Finding the right medicine can really help- often you will feel like your old self. Don't give up! (I have had RA for 35 years- most of that time I was able to function very close to normal.) Good luck.

I don't know alot about Rinvoq as I am not a candidate for it, but RA itself comes with a hefty dose of fatigue & brain fog. My experience so far (2 years) I find the medicines (on my 6th one) just add to the tiredness & brain fog. Even without the medicines you should expected low energy & fogginess.

I am not familiar with Rinvoq, but over the years, I have had many meds, and they all had negative effects on me, while also lowering the intensity of pain. So right now, I am on Lyrica for my neuropathy and OTC Tylenol. I have more fatigue and brain fog the older I get. I know doesn't offer much comfort, but I take it one day at a time and don't push myself.
