Kevzara And Covid 19

Kevzara And Covid 19

I'm getting conflicting answers from my rheumatologist and my primary care doctors about taking Kevxara and getting Covid-19. My primary care doctor has told me that because I am taking Kevzara that I can't get Covid-19. On the other hand I asked my rheumatologist that very same question. Can I get Covid while on Kevzara? My rheumatologist says yes, you can still get Covid-19 while on Kevzara. So my question is, who do I believe?? I'm stunned in hearing two different answers who come from the… read more

I dont know the answer, but i got both shots. My opinion you can get the virus. Its best to be safe and get the vaccine. Than to not have it and get sick or die.

I am also on Humira and have been on 3 other meds and I am still in pain do you think this could help me

I have had RA for 35 years. By and large I recommend trying the drugs until you find one that works (usually with methotrexate). You will be much better when you find the right one. Don't give up.

Kevzara

Kevzara

Is anyone currently taking or have been prescribed the IL-6 inhibitor biologic RA medication, Kevzara, the manufacturer is Sanofi? If so, is it working, how long did it take for you to notice that your disease seems to be getting under control, and did anyone notice any specific side effects. I'm currently taking the medication, and have 3 injections.

Wow it seems like everyone who has RA are getting or have either hip or knee replacement. Do anyone think RA is the factor 🤔 of these?

I have been injecting Kevzara until 5 weeks ago, I came off it due to side effects. In the 5 weeks of no treatment I have started to flare up. I have now been given Etanacept injections. My problem is, the advice I have been given by my helpline. I spoke to the RA nurse about my flare ups, the reply was, we would normally give you a steroid injection, but because it will lower my immune system, we are not giving them. I then asked about my Etanacept injections, which are Immuno suppressors, and… read more

Please talk with your rheumatologist about giving you a letter stating why you shouldn’t go in to work.

Forgive The Newbie. Has Anyone Here With RA Tried The Paleo AIP Approach?

Forgive The Newbie. Has Anyone Here With RA Tried The Paleo AIP Approach?

When I was first diagnosed, my research exposed me to a ton of info regarding the AIP (autoimmune protocal diet) approach. I tried the elimination diet for a while but because I was simultaneously taking methotrexate and prednisone, I couldn't tell what was working.
I'd welcome any insights and testimonials about this. Thanks
