This drug has worked well.I have been on it for 5 years with great symptom control. However, I have just spent 4 days in hospital on IVs because of cellulitus in one of my injection sites.

I have difficulty giving myself the shot-my husband has to push the button on the injector. I feel a very strong burning sensation after the shot. Sometimes it will burn 30-60 seconds after the shot. Seems I can never find a good spot for the shot with little to no pain
