Orencia Reviews

Show: for
After 6 treatments, it finally kicked in. No weight gain, or side effects so far. I was so scared at first, never having an infusion before, but after trying 4 other type treatments and them not working, I was out of options and getting low on hope. I take this with 8 methotrexate. I feel human again, Thanks orencia!
Working / Worked
Currently trying, not sure if its going to work?
Working / Worked
Did it so I could work but did much better on Rituxan!!
Working / Worked
I took the Rituxin infusion for my RA but this medicine is the BOMB! I helps keep the inflamation down and i have more normal days. The only thing i don't like about it is the back pain. A side effect is chronic back pain, as if we need another source of pain, but it subsides. The positives outway the negatives.

on for 6 mths

I am in a trial to get this approved as a weekly self injection. So far it has helped with the swollen feeling from inflammation. But my CRP numbers are higher than my rhuemy wants it to be.
Working / Worked
Starting soon. Other meds not working.
Working / Worked
