I've had rheumatoid arthritis for 20 years I take actemra, a biologic, to treat it, I found out I also have hep c and will be starting treatment for it this week, i know it is 12 weeks but don't know much else about it, will I have to go off of my actemra during the 12 weeks? I know I'll find all this out in a few days but my RA is currently extremely bad and I'm very nervous about how this treatment will affect my RA, the side effects of the treatment and if I will have to stop my actemra injections! I would just like any feedback on what to expect, thanks!
jmo; What you want to do before you start the medication, You have to let the doctor know of everything you are taking because they have to check your blood often. and you don't want to mess up you hep c treatment so you well have to ask the doctor. Good luck to you Just be careful and go from there drink lots of water.
