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.

Rheumatic Disease

Hi. My name is Marianne. I have been having problems with my chronic pain and internal organs. I am being referred to a rheumatologist to check for rheumatic disease. Does anyone else have this and can tell me what to expect? I am a little anxious and afraid.

I Am Crying~

I Am Crying~

2 years ago I went to a neurology clinic because I thought I was suffering from early onset Alzheimer Disease.I would forget names of things I am working on, names of people, dogs, projects I am working on, places I have been and subjects that I have taught.It is very embarrassing especially at work. I thought I was losing my mind, but I just learned that this was a symptom of my RA before I was diagnosed with it. I am not crazy, yes I was tested. How do I make this go away?

A myRAteam Member said:

Meds For Brain Fog?

Meds For Brain Fog?

I’ve had really bad brain fog lately and there are some days when I can’t get anything done. My sister takes Concerta for her brain fog and says it helps a lot.
Does anyone take a stimulant type medicine for their brain fog? Not supplements, which I have looked into.
