I've been on Orencia 7 months and notice that my swollen joints have subsided.... but after the first treatment, I got sores in my mouth that went away but then my face broke out with a rash that comes and goes, but never really goes away... it looks like I have a bad diaper rash on my face around my mouth, nose, and it is now affecting my eyes..people do look strange at me now.

I've been using this medication since it was first released. I also take Mobic and methotraxate injections once a week (easier than pills/less side effects). It has helped me get back to my hobbies and a more normal life.

Comment:
Pain is not controlled. Program is underdeveloped. Using the in home care infusion program and they don't show up, or call. The medicine is having so far about a 68% success rate with all joints but wrists and elbows. Wouldn't advise starting the program until they are able to accomodate the patients they currently have.
