Hi Amy65 I’m due to start this biologic next week . The reason I’m going on this and not one of the other well known ones is because I’ve had skin cancer in the past 3 yrs. this is a brand new biological only recently tried here from America . I would seek your Rheumy nurses advice if you are feeling unwell as could be that it doesn’t agree with you ..... hope your ok

Hi thankyou just read up the reviews on line 're dosent suit everyone .advice line told me to stop it till I c my consultant rheaumtoglist. Hope it helps u x amy

Hi Amy65 sorry to hear that you are suffering this bad reaction from this. I am due to talk to my Rheumatologist on the 11th May about starting this one as none of the other DMARD's worked on me. Wanted to ask how often do you have the injection and wether you have to do this yourself. Hope you are recovering now.

Karenpenn I'm getting ok now had to stop the injections .they are a monthly injection of 150mg pen device for RA. If it's for psoriasis it's 2 injections monthly .yes u have to self inject or 1 of ur family can be taught .but don't worry hospital will show u .and nurse comes out to u for 1st injection to c u can do it .u will probley be on loading dose injection every 5days for few weeks then monthly .is this ur first biologic. X amy

Hi Amy65 yes this will be the first biologic as this is the last option as none ot the other methods worked as i have two arthiritis one RA & Psoriasis and reckon i might have fibro as well. Best wishes.x
