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 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.

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.

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

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.

A myRAteam Member said:
