I have had RA for 36 yrs. Enbrel was my number one choice but it faded out after 7 yrs. Rituxan did great for 3 years, but now it, too, is losing its effectiveness, so my doctor suggested going up to 3 times/year instead of 2..yikes. I just can't make myself do that because of the severe possible brain disease and other things. I am on Orencia now but I don't think its going to do much ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This is not an "easy" choice for me. It is however about the only option available to me now as other treatments have failed. My reaction has been uneven. Sometimes I suffer side effects for 1-4 weeks and other times just a few days. Eventually I get relief but that also varies from a little to a lot. I look forward to a new alternative but until then, this is my best option.

I am 73 with RA for 7 years. This is the fifth med I have been on. After my third treatment two months later I got a red ithcy rash. Round scaly spots on my arms and legs. RA Dr. said it is not Rituxin. He is treating me with prednisone. I am considering not taking anymore treatments.

Will be taking my fourth round next week (6 treatments under my belt). I have had RA for approx 20 yrs. I have tried most everything available. Since the first treatment, I have come off of taking Tramadol for pain and Prednisone for inflamation. I have been very please with no side effects. I think you just have to try anything and everything until you find the right drug to help your body.

I had 2 infusions - after the second one I noticed hair loss, it suppressed my immune system too much and got sick 5 times in 8 months with sinus infections etc. After trying to boost immune system with pneunomia which didn't work. I am now having to take IVIG glamuglobin treatment to boost my immune system. As far as the RA it worked, but it screwed up my immune system. Hope this review w ... Show Full Comment
