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.

How did you do with the knee replacement? They have recommended for my right knee but I haven’t done it yet. Rheumy said to wait as long as possible.

Insurance Denial Of Xeljanz

Insurance Denial Of Xeljanz

I've been on Enbrel for 2+ years and Humira prior to that. Enbrel worked fairly for the first year or so but I've been having a lot of joint damage in my fingers. Not much pain though. After my last Rheumatologist visit he has suggested trying Xeljanz and has submitted a prescription to my pharmacy (CVS Specialty Pharmacy). So far it has been rejected and they want me to first try Kevzara and Orencia. I haven't found anyone who has used Kevzara and it was only approved in 2017. I know… read more

Anyone had any luck taking this new medicine? I have been on Humira, Orencia, Enbrel, Cymcia and Kezvara. Nothing has really worked as my joints are chronic. I am kind of thinking about going the organic route. Especially with this COVID19! Thanks

Worried

Worried

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 she… read more

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

Opinions Wanted!

Opinions Wanted!

Hey, RA friends. I’d love to get some opinions on a situation I’m experiencing and I’m curious if other people have gone through something similar...
I’ve been waiting for several months to get Xeljanz approved but it just got rejected for the second time yesterday. My rheumatologist believes I should try a JAK-inhibitor because I have failed Enbrel and Humira (two TNF blockers), but to be honest, I’m pretty nervous about it. All of the JAK-inhibitors out there come with a risk of blood clots,… read more
