I have had RA for over 3yrs tried methotrexate and sulfasazine didn't work, humira worked for awhile and simponi didn't work at all... And now will start actemra soon... I am not afraid of needles just of the unknown any tips or facts will help??
Hello angJul, I started with infusions of Acterma almost three weeks ago, but still having lots of pain. I think you are a little ahead of me with this medication and was wondering how you are doing with it? I don't have much stiffness now but, still in lots of pain. I see there are not very many here that are on this treatment. Hope it's working for you. I think it takes two or three infusions to really start to feel the affects. Hope to hear from you soon.
