Comment:
RA is a nasty condition and I was diagnosed 2 years ago. I have tried various meds, just like you and here's what I found to help me. Injections are more painful than taking pills (hence the 'ease of use' rating), but the relief from pain is wonderful. I have a prescription for 400mg (2 shots) once a month, but feel that I need it more often. I am also taking Methotrexate and daily ... Show Full Comment

I have not been able to taper prednisone yet, which has been a goal; still on 10mg. I'm somewhat satisfied because I was so much worse last summer, basically disabled.
