Benepali not working as well as Enbrel???

Hi everyone, I'm currently having an awful flare. I switched to Benepali 6 months ago from Enbrel. Since then, I've been getting worse. Terrible fatigue, lots of swollen joints, my knee has ballooned...but my blood tests aren't showing anything? I rang my Rheumatology nurse who wasn't very sympathetic and made me feel as if I was making it up. They're going to inject my knee next week, so I now have to grit my teeth for another 9 days. I feel fairly despondent to be honest. Has anyone else's Ra worsened since switching to Benepali??

Mine hasn't got worse but I still get problems with my hands and needed a steroid injections in each hand 2 months ago plus last week when at my fitness class my right knee felt as if it was giving way a couple off times , so I've been wearing a knee support since and I'm getting terrible fatigue and it seems to be the day after I have my mtx injection20mgs

Oh dear, it's grim isn't it? I was really good for several years and it's all been quite a shock to feel so awful again. What a lonely disease this is!

Maybe they're needing to try you on something else they say that sometimes the biological needs changed after a few years , hope you get sorted soon xxx

Make a rheumy appointment and ask to go back to Enbrel.
