Comment:
I have been on Simponi since July 09 (now Dec. 09), in conjunction with Methotrexate. Prior to July 09, just doing the grocery store was really difficult. My feet in particular have been quite affected by the RA. However, now I can do everything I was able to before all of this started (in the spring of 2008). No problems with the Simponi injections, no reaction issues - just relief from the d ... Show Full Comment

I have just sarted taking this drug and started feeling good by the time I got home from the doctor office. The next day was even better. I am very pleased with this medicine so far and from the reviews it will stay that way. So far good after 3 days.

I have only had one shot, but within 24 hrs I had no more pain. On a scale of 1-10, with one being the least, I was @ a 5 all the time. I am hoping to reduce other medications that I was already taking, since I am on Simponi. I start reducing Prednisone with my 2nd shot. I am so pleased and I pray that I can get off all other medication.

Comment:
The first month I got a yeast infection after 4 days, month 2 I got another yeast infection then I started itching and burning all over my body. If I scratched a spot it welted up but then went away if I stopped scratching that area. 12 days into the 2nd shot and I am still itching all over my body and welting up. I am living on benadril and pretty miserable. My skin is very sensitive and hurts if ... Show Full Comment
