    I had my first injection on 18 Oct 2010, overnite pain was gone. I have had RA for over 15 yrs and the only drug I have done is Humira for 1 1/2. It wane out. I got my first shot from my doc for free to see what might happen. The only complaint is it rose my blood pressure way up and that caused headaches. Now the weird part is I not going to get another shot due to these reasons. Yet it has been ... Show Full Comment

    I was diagnosed 5 yrs ago. Previously I was taking Enbrel for about 2 years, but it was no longer effective. I am very satisfied with the results of Simponi. I still have some morning stiffness, but it is so much better than before. I also take Diclofenac 100mg(daily) and Methotrexate 2.5mg(wkly).

    What a difference! I was diagnosed 3 yrs ago. I am taking plaquenil and sulfasalzine. I have tried Humera and Enbrel. I just had my second dose of Simponi and have noticed a huge difference. I am feeling so much better. I still have difficult days, but the good days are increasing. I urge you to talk to your Doc about this wonder drug.

    I have been on Simponi for 3 months now and have been mostly pain free from the first day I took it. I had had so much pain in my shoulders that I could not sleep even with even with all the narcotics I tried. I have slept very well since the day I started Simponi. My wrists, hands, and knees are also greatly improved. I have gone from 150 Tylenol 3's a month to 30. The only reaction I ha ... Show Full Comment
