Erelzi

Erelzi

Hi my Doc. wants me to try Erelzi ans I am scared I have tried 3 other medications and i am sorry for any spelling mistakes ! I have tried methtrexate and 2 other pill forms and I can't take them they give me chest pain head ache and a pain in my stomach . What I am wondering if there are others that have been on the pill forms of meds and tried the Erelzi and had bad side effects ? I sure don't want to die from this med and I don't want other problems !!

Anyone Take Cymbalta For OA Pain

Anyone Take Cymbalta For OA Pain

I have RA and take Erelzi. I have some days where I have sharp/shooting pain. Doctor says it is from my OA and has prescribed Cymbalta. I have been doing well on Erelzi with only headaches in the beginning. I am afraid to take another medication with such bad side effects. Anyone taking Cymbalta for OA or Fibromyalgia? How is it working and how are you doing with side effects?

Thanks @A myRAteam Member. I took my first dose of Hyrimoz (Humira) tonight. I hope it works quickly. Take care.

How Many People Are Still Taking Methotrexate?

How Many People Are Still Taking Methotrexate?

My Family Doctor was discussing all of the Medications I am taking.
He said some of his RA patients stopped taking Methotrexate when they added a Biologic Medication.
Awhile ago I added Xeljanz to my Methotrexate.

So basically I am asking those who started taking Methotrexate and then later added a Biologic or Xeljanz, are you still taking Methotrexate?

Vitamin Infusion Therapy

Vitamin Infusion Therapy

Does anyone do these as part of their RA treatment? I started mine 2 weeks ago (doing every 2 weeks) ive read great things about how it can help with RA related fatigue, pain and inflammation. Wanted to know if anyone else had it and if it worked for them or what anyone else has heard about it good or bad? just wish it was covered by insurance because they are EXPENSIVE.

How Long Did It Take For Your Biologic Medication To Start Working?

I just took my third dose of Erelzi, which I take once a week.
I have not noticed significant improvement yet, I am wondering when I might expect to find out if my new medication is working or not.
Thank you again everyone, for your input.

@A myRAteam Member I didn’t have any reaction to Rituxan, it just didn’t work well for me. I seemed to have a constant flare. Nothing works for me though, I’ve switched drugs so many times. My… read more
