  • Is it just people who have RA that can participate? I have AS and on Benepali.

  • And I have PsA and about to start benepali. (How is it doing Mhairi? X)

  • Pain wise, it's been great! Still get some pain in my knees and back but SO much better than it was. Still struggling a bit with fatigue and poor concentration, but overall I'm really pleased with how it's worked for me. Hopefully it will be the same for you!

  • Anyone on a biosimilars can take part

  • Sadly I took Benapali injection for 4 week before getting an Allergic reaction - Acute skin rash. I have had thsi with MTX and Sulfasalazine. I am now scared fo trying the next Biosimilar in three weeks time after the rash has cleared.
