Enbrel?

Enbrel?

My RA is not "controlled" my doctor said cause I am having a high amount of activity he wanted to put me on enbrel. Personally I don't want to do injections, I'm scared. But I am trying to up my methotrexate to 8 tables now...and still 2mg prednisone, but he says that if I get off methotrexate he said I will be able to get off prednisone which is what I want....but I feel cornered....I don't know what to do....

That is great that you can tolerate the methotrexate as an injection. I could not tolerate it even as an injection. What is the issue with the Enbrel? I used to take that as… read more

Cimzia

Cimzia

So anyone experiencing extreme fatigue from cimzia? Also taking 20mg of methotrexate weekly. My inflammation is down but am so so tired.

A myRAteam Member said:

I took Cimzia for about 8 months or longer. Not my remission drug and gave me other side effects. I will agree with the lethargy that comes with RA, and some RA biologic treatments. I will encourage… read more

Pregnancy And RA

Pregnancy And RA

Hello! Does anyone here have experience with pregnancy and RA. I am 28 weeks pregnant. Probably not surprising, but I am tired and I hurt all the time. How do I sort out what is RA and what is just pregnancy? My docs seem to think it's just pregnancy. Either way, I will be glad when I am finished with the pregnancy. Any words of wisdom to get me through the last trimester would be very much appreciated :)

A myRAteam Member said:

Hey Cimzia buddy! Just fyi, my OB doesn't seem to think the RA or Cimzia are a big deal. I am high risk for other reasons, but they don't seem concerned at all about the RA or the meds. So I guess… read more

Thanks for the answers. It has not helped me so far. I have tried orenzia, xeljanz, humira, embrel and cimzia none have helped. It's frustrating.

What Were Your Symptoms After 1st Cimzia Injection? Mine Weren't Good.

What Were Your Symptoms After 1st Cimzia Injection? Mine Weren't Good.

Doc said I was a Mx failure since my joints still hurt after being on Mx for five months. Tried Humira but had hiccup coughs shortly after injections and then broke out in poison ivy like hives had the same reactions but worse after the second injection. Hives biopsied and was allergic. Kept on Mx but stopped taking it after repeatedly getting upper respiratory and sinus infections. Doc tried me on Cimzia yesterday. Immediately after the injection had raging migraine headache and hot flash with… read more

Cimzia

Cimzia

I would like to hear about your Cimzia experience.

I began Cimzia injections 3 1/2 weeks ago. The day of, I get very nauseous and a BAD headache. For the next 4-5 days I have nausea, extreme fatigue, and intestinal problems. 🙄 I've also noticed hair thinning.
I am hoping that my body gets used to it and that this med does the trick.

Cimzia And Nausea

Cimzia And Nausea

Does anyone who takes Cimzia experience nausea the day after their injection? I didn't always have this side effect but have come to expect it now after every dose. I can't seem to find much online about it, but it definitely appears to be drug-related. It reminds me a lot of the nausea I would get after taking Methotrexate. I've been on a variety of biologics and have never had nausea as a side effect, apart from Methotrexate. I'm wondering if anyone else out there is dealing with the same… read more
