I tend to be tired for a few days after treatment. I have noticed hair loss and I am concerned that it might be from the drug. Wonder if any others havehad this problem.

It seems to be working so far, but to early to tell as the other medications started out working and then stopped after several months. Do have some headaches and tiredness.

Comment:
Have had 6 treatments over the last 6 months. I have failed to see any major changes in my condition, however, the week before it's due I know it's due. That being said, it must be working to some degree. All in all, it's not a miracle drug but then again, there doesn't seem to be anything better on the market yet.

I have been getting Actemra IV for about 4 years as part of a research study and it has helped me tremendously. I just had my first setback with high Liver count numbers so have to skip my dose this month.
