I Would Like To Hear From Anyone Taking Orencia, Is It Making A Difference For You?

I Would Like To Hear From Anyone Taking Orencia, Is It Making A Difference For You?

Orencia didn’t help me. I have failed Enbrel, Humira triggered a staph infection and put me in the hospital for over a week, and i had a bad reaction to one that starts with an A. I am now on Kevzara and i just ended upbay urgent care because of a bad flare. This has all been over 20 years. I really dislike this disease.

I stopped Rinvoc 3 months ago after "trying" 5 others, to no avail. Nothing worked and I had to start chemotherapy and radiation for cancer. I have decided to have one more appointment with my rheumatologist. If she has nothing to say substantively, I am done with it all.

PS:. I noticed no dramatic physical changes or worsening of symptoms and have been off any rheumatoid drugs for 3 months.

I have read that it sometimes takes months to feel the benefits! Has anyone decided not to take any of these high powered meds and tried to manage the symptoms on your own?

I've been on Orencia for about 2.5 months. I feel a little relief but nothing "life changing" yet. I have been resting more, eating better and doing aqua fitness so maybe these accompanied with the medication is helping me. Praying for you and sending you gentle hugs.
