Is Anyone On Methotrexate And Simponic Aria?

Is Anyone On Methotrexate And Simponic Aria?

Will be starting infusions soon with simponic aria and oral methotrexate and have mixed feelings. Some information is positive about taking this combination and yet there's alot of negative effects also. I haven't discussed this with my rheumatologist yet but just wondering if there are any people in this group that may help me from experience. Thank-you in advance.

Simpani Aria Infusion And Headache

Simpani Aria Infusion And Headache

I've recently started Simpani Aria infusions and after a few days developed a nasty headache that has been on and off for about a week and a half now. I don't normally get headaches, so I was wondering if anyone else had this happen while on the infusions? Im hoping it's from something else as I feel the infusions are working but it wouldn't be worth it with the nasty headache all the time. Anyone else have a similar situation?

I get horrible headaches and vertigo for the first week after the Simponi infusion.

Switching From Humira To Simponi. Anybody Taking Simponi...I Never Heard Of This Drug.

Switching From Humira To Simponi. Anybody Taking Simponi...I Never Heard Of This Drug.

I have been on Humira for a few years but doesn't seem to be working as well as it did. My doc wants me to take Samponi.....I just hate changing my meds. So afraid of side effects, etc. If anyone is on this drug, I would appreciate any info you can give me such as effectiveness, side effects, etc. Thanks, Donna.

A myRAteam Member said:

I hope the Simponi works for you. Sad to say it didn’t work for me. Humira worked for 6 years. I am now on Rinvoq. Doing ok but have a lot of sinus problems since taking it. I wish u well. Donna.

Simponi Arabia Infusion

Simponi Arabia Infusion

Helped my R/A after trying 3 other meds which produced too many side effects. I Now have a rash over much of my body/seeing dermatologist to determine what is going on. Stopped simponi aria for the time being but miss how it made me feel. Can anyone relate to this?

A myRAteam Member said:

Thanks. Prednisone is clearing up rash but being on that is a whole other issue. Challenging times!

My gum is getting irritated and inflamed a couple of days ago despite my thorough dental hygiene practice ( flossing & mouth wash after each meal besides 2x brushing/d).

On Methotrexate, Folic Acid & Simponi Aria And Loosing Way To Much Hair!

I’ve been on Methotrexate for 5 yrs and Simponi for about 2 yrs. Little by little I’ve lost so much hair something has got to change
Thinking about asking about Xeljanz but since it’s a pill & not an infusion wonder how Ins will handle the cost
