I am asking for my mother, age-91. She has been taking Orencia for about 4-years and claims it is no longer working well. She wants to discontinue medication. Please advise.
Let her doctor know that she would like to stop taking Orencia, before actually stopping. I couldn't find any reviews where the user had a similar experience.
I was on it for a yr. Last winter, I appeared to have a virus causing digestive problems. A virus was going around my school affecting both children and adults. 4 months later, I still had symptoms with the pattern being worse after a weekly orencia shot. I discontinued one week before my rheumatology visit & was able to report symptoms ended. I was taken off this drug & 10 wks later started rituxan.
