Questions to Ask Your Doctor continued...
There are also questions you will need to ask yourself when choosing a biologic. A few questions to consider are:
- Am I OK with giving myself shots? If not, is there someone who can give them to me if I have trouble?
- Could I commit to giving myself shots consistently for a long time?
- Would it be hard for me to sit still for two or more hours for an infusion? Would it be possible for me to get away from work or family responsibilities for infusions?
Do I prefer the convenience of a shot or would I feel more comfortable receiving treatment in a center from a health professional?
