    I received my one and only injection on March 7,2019 and my life has not been the same since. I had a severe allergic reaction which affected my face and ears and neck, it enhanced my asthma to the point of 3 asthmatic reactions which I never had until this injection. I had muscle, joint and back pain to th point that I could barely walk. This is not a hoax and the person in these reviews who said ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    I was reluctant to take this drug based on people's reviews on this site. Someone mentioned to me that it is less likely that those who have experienced no side effects consider writing reviews. I had my first injection last month and all is well. No discernible side effects. I do realize people's experiences are unique, but hopefully this review gives some balance on this site. I only gav ... Show Full Comment

    Debilitating bone/joint/muscle pain. Headaches. Skin rashes on legs/arm/face. Extreme fatigue. Lost 2/3 of my hair and all eyelashes. All of this has led to depression, anxiety and psychotherapy. No one warned me of these side effects. 7 doctors say all is fine with me, perhaps drug-induced lupus thanks to this biological drug.

    Terrible lower back pain. Months at physical therapy. Developed diarrhea. Sudden for no apparent reason. Started to pay attention to what I ate. Seemed to be a connection to milk. Took a lactose intolerance test. NOT lactose intolerant yet it was always an immediate response when I ate dairy products. Went on lactose free diet. It helped but still total sensitivity to foods. Ended up in the emerg ... Show Full Comment
