I have been having infusions of Acterma and wondering when it will start working. I have poloymyalgia Rheumatica and the pain has taken me to the limit. I can't use my hands , headaches, hip, leg, thigh pain severe. I am hoping that after a couple more infusions, I will feel better. I have to keep asking my doctor for more prednisone . Doctor seems to think the Acterma will work and doesn't want me on prednisone. I am coming off of a 15 day coarse of the prednisone now and starting to feel the pain again. I have had 1 infusion and next one is this week.
In the 5 reviews given, 3 of them had dates of when the medication started working. Patients started feeling benefits at 3 infusions (12 weeks), 8 weeks (2 infusions), & 8-9 months (8-9 infusions). Found the reviews here : https://www.drugs.com/comments/tocilizumab/actemra.html
