hello all. Well I have been passed as fit to get this months infusion of Tocilizamub. I wasn't able to get one last month due to a low white cell count. Anyhow the question I have is.....has anyone put on a lot of weight with this drug? When I was getting my first the nurse who was inserting my drip happened to say that some people had complained about the weight they had put on will in the drug. Now listen everyone.....before I started biologicals I was a size 10/12, I have been on Tocilizamub since December and now I am struggling to get into a14! I can hear you all saying (bet she's fond of a marathon bar every night after her tea), well the truth is I am vegaterian and I eat very healthy. Now i would be telling you a lie if I said I didn't enjoy a good mouthful of chocolate..... Believe me I do but only once a week or so and never on a daily basis.
Does anyone else know of this happening while on Tocilizamub. Now having said all of that, if I was taken off it tomorrow I wouldn't care as it is not helping me very much. In fact I don't think it is helping me at all because I have started to lose any strength I had left inmyright hand. I can feel my thumb twisting u der my skin. The RA is progressing while on a biological, that can't be right.......maybe I'm expecting too much. Am I?
