Hello, I have had RD for approx 20 years taking various medications but I haven't heard of Tocilizumab. I was wondering if anyone has any information on this medication and if it worked for them. I realize everyone reacts differently and what work for one doesn't always work for another. I am seeing a doctor at the Rheumey Clinic tomorrow that I haven't seen before. I do have several questions I need to ask him but any info that I possibly haven't thought to ask would help. I was told I will need to be assessed again by the Biologics Nurse I usually see at the clinic. It is my Consultant who suggested that I would then be put forward for Tocilizumab assessment via the biologics clinic.
I have googled the medication and went on the NICE website, that was mostly regarding the cost of the medication.
Any information would be appreciated.
Many thanks, S
