Has Anyone Taken The Covid Vaccine? Which Brand? And Do You Experience Any Side Effects?

My Rheumatologist suggests that I space out the Covid vaccine with the depo medrol shot. I’ll be getting my vaccine on this Saturday. Feeling a bit nervous right now.

I Have A Question On Medications.

I Have A Question On Medications.

I’ve been diagnosed with RA 5 months ago. I’m currently taking Avara and Medrol, have been on these two meds since diagnosed with RA. My rheumatologist is tapering me off of the Medrol. On top of Avara, she’s proposing to add Humira and INH for 9 months to my treatment. Because I have a positive TB skin test. I would need to take INH with Humira. Anyone out there taking these medications, anything I should know about them such as major side effects and what to look out for. Is Humira effective… read more

I just didn’t want to have to do the infusions. I knew about the Humira Pens. I didn’t know about the Humira you draw out in a syringe. Thank you for the help.

Rayos?

Rayos?

My doctor has prescribed me Rayos, an extended release Predisone. I had it probably 10 months ago but didn't tolerate it and I can't remember for the life of me what effect it had on me.
Anyway, has anyone taken this? If so, what did you think about it?
Thanks!

Orencia And Weight Gain?

Orencia And Weight Gain?

I have just started Orencia infusions. I had the first round of infusion every two weeks (for a total of 3) and the first monthly infusion. I realize that I have gained about 5 - 6 pounds over that period of time. I am eating exactly the same. Nothing has changed except for the Orencia. Has anyone else experienced this? It's crazy! I gained a little over a pound overnight after eating fairly lightly all the previous day.

I have gained weight on Orencia although I exercise and watch what I eat. So frustrating!

Has Anyone Ever Had Any Trouble With Severe Swelling All Over?

Has Anyone Ever Had Any Trouble With Severe Swelling All Over?

Swelling??

A myRAteam Member said:

Have you tried any of the biologics with The methotrexate? You could gain better control and not need as much Prednisone. I am a nurse as well, am just fully disabled from my primary disease.

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

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
