This drug works well for me,I have mild RA,I no longer experience swelling in morning & find that my hands work better. On the last week before I inject I do experience some small difficulties just to let me know that I have RA. Overall I am well.

Been on everything on the books for RA for past 14yrs and Simponi has worked fairly well until recently. Have gone from 3 1/2 wks relief to just about a week and a half at most & back to adding Celebrex x2day. Never had any lumps in armpit as on reader posts but massive welt from time to time at injection site.
