I am new here and I have the opportunity to go on these biologic drugs by injection. It is just like the diabetic injection you do your self so no big deal.
Methorexate was working for my RA for years but I was having operations for nodules on my arms and hands which kept re-ocurring! So last July they replaced it with Arava and after a few months my blood pressure soared and my hair was thinning out dramatically. So I have now stopped that and take Meloxicam which I have always done and started Plaquenil. I am not in much pain apart from my knees and shoulders.
I am not keen to take these new drugs, what experience has anyone had? it would be helpful to know. Many thanks Brenda.
