I am on Tocizumab injections at the moment but will be starting on Orencia infusions first then I can have injections if all goes well. I have received my welcome pack and waiting for a call to advise when the nurse will come to give me the infusions in my home. The tocizumab injections have stopped working since I had to stop them due to me having a chest infection and take antibiotics. The injections didn't seem to work as well as the infusions which were brilliant and I felt they gave me a new life.
I am hoping the Orencia/Abatacept will give me the pain relief I need so I can start to enjoy life again. If anyone has been on this medication I would appreciate your feedback either way. I know everyone reacts differently but I am interested to know if it helped others with RD.
I hope everyone is feeling better now we have some warmer weather and sunshine.
Take care, Sue
