Hi everyone. I dont post here often but had a few questions. My doc wants to put my on kineret and im kinda nervous to try doing shots myself. Does anybody here use kineret and do you like it? Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I have now been on the kineret for 4 days. My husband gives it to me at night before bed. I feel no different yet. I will give it about a month and hope to have some relief by then.

How often do you have to do the injections?

Every night? Holy cow! Did the doc say how long it would take before you started feeling any results?
