I was in a study for Rituxam for over 5 years but felt like I had built up a tolerance to it. In hopes that one of the newer RXs would work I reluctantly came off the study & started Cimzia around Feb (9 mths ago) but have not had any relief so my RA Dr is going to try me on Actemra. I have a history of ulcers, skin rashes and have had MERSA so I'm very concerned when reading the info about this drug. I know I probably would not try ANY RX if I worried about the "side effects" & my Dr didn't even seem to be aware of these things being an issue when I mentioned them; but I just wondered if anyone else has tried this new med. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
