Hi I normally post on the RA site but I am being changed to this med and can't find anyone who is currently taking it there. Is there any crohn sufferers out there on it? I'd love any feedback, always scary starting new meds.
I was on humira but had to have a surgical menopause (lost both my ovaries) and its thrown me into the worst flare imaginable. My rheumy has tried remicade, prednisone, cortisone shots and still I swell...I am really hoping someone may have some info for me about orencia. Especially from a personal viewpoint.
Here's hoping, golitho

Personal. I can relate.
Been on remicade... Cimzia.. Humira.. ALL 3 Tnf's.

I seem to metabolize these medications very fast.. So i only get a few weeks out of them, and yet do they ever change my stools etc..
I dont have RA, Or atleast i dont think i do.. Sadly..

TNF's work Different for everyone. The fact that you were on humira and Remicade (the Alpha)..
Its hard to say if orencia is going to help.

have you tried Methotrexate?
I might start this later in the week.
