helps fatigue, not so helpful with pain reduction. Started with weekly injections, now on monthly infusions. Stopped working all together after 1 year.

I was on for 5yrs now , I actually wished I was back on this, what I'm on now is a night mare. Actually I'm trying to get back on this MED.

LOVED IT! Worked very well for me and was devastated when my new Medicare insurance denied authorization for it! BUMMER!

been on the self injection for 6 weeks. Have had some relief as of the 5th week
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!
