Horrible reaction to the infusion this year. Took it last year no problems. It has been 2 months and I'm still suffering jaw pain, headaches, back pain and fatigue. All I get is to take a pain reliever. I don't think I'll be doing this again.

I took it for 3 years then I was so much better, they took me off ... Show Full Comment

I had to go to the doctor's for a steroid shot to lessen symptoms, then developed a secondary bacterial infection. ... Show Full Comment

Effectiveness required an answer. In truth, I had my first infusion in May of this year. Won't take Dexter to determine effectiveness until 2017. So, effectiveness remains to be seen. The administration of the drug is easy, and minimal side effects. My teeth hurt for a few days but returned to normal. I have never seen that mentioned as a side effect, but I had it. I am writing this bec ... Show Full Comment
