First benepali injection

Well what can I say, its been 9hours since my first benepali injection and no improvement yet But to be serious im just so glad to be on these medications after months of debilitating pain and stiffness and am hoping they start working so I can live instead of just surviving. Watch out vegetable patch there going to be some serious growing going on this year.

Rant over there may be more in the months to come. Hope every one else is pain free.

  • I am so fed up. Only managed 4 injections of Benapali before I got allergic reaction Severe Rash. I've had this with all drugs so far except Prednisolone. They are trying Enbrel next. Does anyone know if there is a pre test for allergy to Biologics. Steroid injection and Prednisolone tablets seem to be all I can tolerate. .

  • I thought Benapali was the same as Enbrel. Lol. Same stuff just different name, because they changed hands... So to speak.

  • I'm back on Benepali injections after a period of various infections when initially on it for a few weeks! Now been on it 5weeks & all good! Hurray!
