I have been on Orencia for about a year and a half. I feel very good and have no side effects that I am aware of. I have high energy and a small amount of pain. It seems in the fall I have pain but then it passes. I take this inconjuction with Methotresxate and folic acid...no sores in my mouth, no nausea, just tired the day of the infusion.

I experience extreme nausea-so after the 1st treatment they give me an anti nausea shot and I no longer have that problem- also if I spend the day doing very little I have found less fatigue. I am one who is allergic to 98% of RA Meds-so still have a few flares, but just had 6th treatment and am doing pretty good- but I can tell when it is wearing off- and look forward to the treatment.

I could not take Humira because I had, and still have Histoplasmosis present but dormant in my lungs.Although Orencia is not contraindicated with Orencia use, I am taking an antifungal to be on the safe side.
