Olumiant

Olumiant

My doctor is going to put me Olumiant. I was on Actemra but I had two needles that wouldn’t plung so I said I am not going to take it again. Does anyone take this? I have been on so many different ones that I am about to say I am done with this. I just want one that works longer than a year. I am so tired of giving myself injections and I am so tired of hurting.

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

What Were Your Symptoms In The Beginning?
