Thought I would give a quick post 2 week update. No response. My GI isn’t really surprised that the Rinvoq isn’t working as it is the same mechanism as xeljanz. He wants to give it another two weeks and try Stelera. His view is that since remicade worked so well for me originally and I am steroid refractive it could be effective.
It is frustrating but I do have hope considering I have twice been able to come out of nasty flares. I am also realistic that I don’t have a lot of other ammo in a the arsenal.
Sorry to hear that. I did have a feeling this would be the case, as both drugs target the same enzymes, albeit more selectively.
I had an amazing 6 year remission with Stelara, before it stopped working for me. Really hope you get the same result, should you go down that route.
