Is It "working"?

Is It "working"?

I've now been on Humira since mid June, and I see my rheumatologist next week. He's going to ask if I feel like the Humira is working, and I don't know how to answer him. Most days my pain and swelling are down, but I also have a lot of breakthrough pain, and it's popped up in places where I wasn't having it before.

How do you decide whether or not your meds are "working/helping" or if it's time to try something else?

Is Anyone Here Using Adalimumab Injections?

Is Anyone Here Using Adalimumab Injections?

In have been on these injections for about 4 months now and have in the past 2-3 weeks developed an incredibly itchy rash. I have a few patches that look a bit like eczema (never had eczema before) and are driving me mad with almost constant itching. Has anyone else had this? Does it go away? Any success with the injection treatment?
Any response would be helpful!!

I used Enbrel for over 17 years without much side effects. Recently I asked my Rheumatologist to try Humira as I heard it did not burn at the injection site. After using Humira for about 9 months, I… read more

Has Anyone Tried Diet To Restrict Flareups? It Has Been Suggested That Dairy May Be A Problem, Also Grains. At Present.

I am on Amgivita at present, a self injecting biologic, but it is not controlling flare ups. All oral meds have had to be abandoned for one reason or another. Been on steroids since last April, not good.

Devil's Claw Supplement

Devil's Claw Supplement

I have had RA 3 years now. I have been prescribed hydroxicloriquine - caused confusion, methatrextrate - caused migraines (real stinkers), sulfasaladine - nausea and low blood count, lefudamite - low blood count, amgivita - a biologic, had no effect and now on baricitinib - a biologic taken for 1 month and no improvement. Has anyone tried Devil's Claw supplement and is it effective at reducing the inflammation? Is it suitable to use with prescription medication?

A myRAteam Member said:

I've learned to deal with the horrible side effects of the daily medication cocktail. They are really not nice. But not to have the meds is way worse for me. I haven't tried devil's claw but I do… read more
