Thrush on Orencia


I have RA and Lupus. I am on Plaquenil and have tried, Embrel, Humira, MTX, and Xeljanz. All make me sweat so bad I had to change clothes 3 or 4 times a day. Now I'm taking Orencia ClickJet. After a month I got oral thrush. Doc said to stop for a week gave rx for nystatin to get rid of the thrush, which is not listed as a side effect. Has anyone else had thrush while taking Orencia or any other biological?

I've had thrush for the past 10 days or so. It cleared up with daktarin, but has come back since I finished the course.

I take daily prednisilone and Baricitinib. Amy immunosuppressant drug raises the chance of thrush, it can be a problem.

I did, twice. I used a mouth rinse for it and it cleared relatively quick.

I was on Orencia for four years, it helped a bit but now on to other Biologics.

I have tried all of the same ones you have tried and also have Lupus as part of my UDCTD diagnosis. It was a side effect for me.
