I don't think I've been on this but I've been on various biologic therapies (etanercept, adalimumab and am currently on infliximab which is an eight weekly infusion). These drugs have changed my life. I rarely have to take pain killers now and I no longer feel crippled by fatigue. I feel I have my life back. I really hope it is the same for you. I was terrified of side effects but haven't had any apart from quite a few skin infections. I really hope these drugs work for you. If you would like to chat more feel free to PM me.

I've not had any experience with this but just wanted to say good luck.
I'm about to start humira Nxt week and I'm hoping so very much that it is the drug for me as I'm worn out and truly fed up at the moment sad
