Just started a few weeks ago. I think it really might help me. I have tried Embrel and Humira and neither worked for me.10/6/2012 at 05:38 PM

It has helped a lot. Continued use. S.E. have started to wonder about them as I haven't been on it all that long, yet the last 3 infusions have had dizzyness, h.a., occular pain along with h.a., visual problems, confusion d/t vision. I don't know it it's related. 4/30/2012 at 01:10 PM

It is early yet, 3 injections, but I already am feeling better on Orencia which is so encouraging. I am tapering my prednesone and am feeling much less AM stiffness and pain.3/29/2011 at 12:10 PM
