I am on week 4 injection of orencia tomorrow. I've noticed that the day after an injection, I'm really hurting. I'm on a low dose of prednisone until orencia starts working for me. I hope it will work. Any experience you've had , if you'd share, that would be great!
I had to stop taking cortisone because it was causing me to develop pre-diabetes. Does Orencia raise your blood sugar? I've had my 4th infusion today and I feel it is starting to work. Its bad enough to have R.A., but who the heck needs R.A. PLUS diabetes! PLUSalot of food allergies, PLUS gluten intolerance!!!
I have a question I currently have been on humira for the past few years. It worked amazing. Yet again my body built up a immunity to it and know my Dr. Has put me on infusions of orencia I'm on my 3rd dose. I'm really having a hard time with pain having to take several pain pills to get thru my day, every joint in my body is red and inflamed my feet and hands are extremely swollen. My question is has anyone had good results using orencia and how long does it take to start having some relief.
