Hi everyone, and belated Happy New Year. I've not been on for a few months, but have appt with my Rheumy next week, to decide whether to try Tocilizumab. Not been on any specific RA drug since stopping Humira a year ago - it wasn't helping. She suggested trying Tocil next, but there was so much else happening that I put it off, and hoped things would improve, or at least not get any worse. But I can't deny that I'm much sorer, and fatigue seems worse as well, so I suppose trying another drug is only sensible. Have been looking at my NRAS booklet on biologics to refresh my memory, but its at least 3 years old - is there anything new I should know about? Is Abatacept still prescribed? Rheumy did seem to prefer Tocil over Abatacept but I can't remember why. Am dreading all the side effects already! Does anyone know if you now get Tocil in a pen-injection thing, like Humira? If anyone's on Tocilizumab and had good results, I could use a little encouragement! Thanks for reading. S.
