Have had to reschedule IV twice because of infections. Been on Orencia for 10 mo. After each infusion my DEPRESSION gets worse. I am going to have to stop the med even tho it helps with swelling and pain. "Choose your poison."

I have felt worse with each infusion. Bad headache, muscle cramps and abdominal pain. Chills as well as fatigue. Scheduled to take 4th treatment Monday, 27th and terrified. Have tried Enbrel, Humira, Methotrexate; all with bad side effects. Currently on Arava and Plaquenil (along with Orencia). Felt best on just those two, but x-rays and blood counts show active disease with erosions and inf ... Show Full Comment
