Comment:
Have had RA for more than 20 years but since menopause it became much worse. Have used Enbrel and Humara Methotraxate etc. Methotraxate created liver issues and Enbrel worked well for more than 5 years. Orencia IV worked great for 2 years; the shots did not work. Now it is no longer working so we are going to a different drug hoping something else will work.

I was diagnosed with RA at 15 years old, I'm now 27, and my disease is very severe. I tried methotrexate and Enbrel and they were ineffective, Remicade worked okay for a couple years and then failed. I've been on Orencia for close to 7 years now and for me it is a miracle drug. I very rarely have any pain, stiffness or joint swelling. I now use the subcutaneous injections and they are ...
