Hi and welcome cherokee
I am having infusions too, but of rituximab and I am very happy with it.
Most of the times there are side effects with these medicines. I was told by a friend in the drug industry that to work there must also be a side effect. It is just a matter of how much it can be tolerated by that particular individual.
Keep reading these posts and you will get lots of encouragement even though not many have been granted the opportunity to experience Orencia, I do recall positive thoughts about it.
All the best and hang in there.
This seens like this is a turning point for you
