Biologic dilemma!

I've been on Enbrel and Humira and had adverse reactions. Saw my Rhuemy this morning and she's asked me to decide which one I want to try next. My options are Simponi, Cimzia or Remicade.

Enbrel caused facial/lip swelling after the 5th injection and Humira caused high BP and palpitations. I'm really nervous to try one of the 3 options but really need to get off Pedinosolone as I've been on them for 2 years and they're causing other problems. Any advice regarding my 3 options would be much appreciated.

Have you had a look at each of their websites and had a look at success rates?

Things to think about; are they all in injection form? If one of them is via infusion, would that sway your opinion? Does your rheum have any thoughts either way?

I've tried cimzia and it put me into remission but I had to come off it for other reasons.

As I'm sure you know, we all vary in our responses to treatment and it's hard to advise. It has to feel right for you though. x
