So far I have had 5 injections weekly. At over $200 it is not cheap, however I am off steroids and able to do things. I am slowly building my muscles back up.
I was so depressed on steroids and I just could not handle all the side effects. I have noticed just one side effect with the Actemra. I have my injections Tuesday lunch time and each Thursday I am having a bad headache. I can cope with feeling unwell one day out of 7.
I might end up penniless but at least I feel so much better. My blood test last week was my best one yet. My Rhuemy has me on a 6 month plan. What happens after that I will find out at my next appointment in April.
