Rhemicade helped me , but once I got on Simponi I am like as normal as normal can be! The trick with biologics is to get the drug that targets your TNF factors head on. It’s just like cancer… read more

Sulfasalazine Dizziness And Tinnitus And Anxiety

Sulfasalazine Dizziness And Tinnitus And Anxiety

Hi there.

I've recently been diagnosed with RA. I am 37 years old and find it all very stressful. I started out my treatment on prednisolone and sulfasalazine and found that I have horrible anxiety and panic attacks as well as dizziness and tinnitus. I stopped both and my symptoms improved. I then tried sulfasalazine by itself and found I still had all those symptoms. I stopped again for two weeks and my dizziness and tinnitus improved but didn't go away completely. I thought I give… read more

Remicade

Remicade

Is Inflectra another name for remicade? Or is Inflectra a different biologic?

A myRAteam Member said:

Looked it up on the internet and it said ,.,.,. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved four biosimilar versions of Remicade: Avsola, Inflectra, Ixifi, and Renflexis. I hope this helps.

Remicade Question!

Remicade Question!

I just started Remicade infusions about 1 1/2 weeks ago. I have gotten much worse since the infusion and was wondering if anyone else had this happen when they first started Remicade? The pain is actually worse then it has ever been. When I was getting my infusion the nurse did say that if I was in a flare that I may get worse before I get better. Anyone else had this happen? This is unbearable pain. I get my second infusion on Tuesday.

A myRAteam Member said:

I not on Remicade but I've been on Simponi Aria for over a year now with no side effects. I get an infusion every 8 weeks.

Has Anyone Had Success With Remicade Alone?

Has Anyone Had Success With Remicade Alone?

I was supposed to start Humira and have had an initial dose (Dr provided a sample). It began making a huge difference almost immediately. Now my insurance company has decided I have to first take Remicade infusions for 6 months before they will consider approving Humira. I cannot take methotrexate (liver panel was BAD) and I'm not taking anything else but Prednisone. I'm discontinuing Prednisone asap. Has anyone had success with Remicade alone? How about side effects?

A myRAteam Member said:

I'm on remicade but also take methotrexate and plaquenil. Had less stiffness after first dose but they are still working to find the correct dosage that will last the full 8 weeks between infusions. I… read more

What Medication Is Working For You?

What Medication Is Working For You?

I'm curious what types of treatments people are finding most effective and successful these days for Psoriatic ARthritis / RA? I have been taking methotrexate and remicade infusions for about 3 months. I'm feeling worse and the pain has travelled to more joints. What's working for you?

A myRAteam Member said:

My original post is almost a year old. I finally changed doctors and started stelara about 2 weeks ago. Remicade did absolutely nothing for me. Remicade is the same class of med as humira, it's… read more
