I'm sorry to hear the Humira shots are so painful
I took the Enbrel twice weekly and thoughts those were horrific! I do hope they get better for you, and that you get to feeling better.
As for the Pred, sadly it is the only thing that does work and my rheumy has only prescribed it to me once, and it was fabulous! I had energy and zero pain, and I even cleaned
my house, from top to bottom, instead of just a room here and there. Since my diagnosis, I was pain free and I could sleep, so I took two or three at a time, but then I ran out, and called for more, after all it was just pred right?... wrong!! I didn't get anymore! Ever again, and I was lectured about
the dangers of pred. I have to almost be bed ridden with joint pain now to get pred, and then it is one of those Medrol dose packs, never regular pred. My rheumy doesn't trust me with pred
I can have pain meds filled on a regular basis...but never pred. I know it is not a good medication, and I know my rheumy is doing the right thing, but it does help so much.
Has anyone taken Orencia?
