Anyone on Actemra monthly infusions and what can you tell me? Started 60 mgs. of pred. back in December of 2014 got down to 15 jan 2015 but since Feb back on 40 and last month 38, Rhumey prefers Methotrexate, but a lot os tomach problems now, and nuero opthomologist prefers Actemra. Got a lot of literature from Rhumey and don't think it is approved yet for GCA juyst under study only for RA But heard there is funding, etc, you can apply for I am in New Jersey. Just weighing the pros and cons of both. I am leaning towards the Actemra if can get some financial assistance. Plus am allergic to so many medications, and done in office. Any info greatly appreciated. This support group is truly a blessing!
