Are You Taking Biologics?

Many people in this group are on biologic injections. Some have tried multiple types.

Have you been on biologics in the past or currently? How are things going?

  1. Have been on Enbrel for almost 6 months. Some days I think it helps others not so much. Rheumatologist thinks its helping so wants me to stay on it. No side effects so far

    1. I was initially put on Humira which didn't do anything but make me sick for a few days after the injection. I am now on Cosentyx, which doesn't do anything for my pain, but at least I am not sick after taking it. Went to a pain clinic yesterday. They put me on Lyrica and referred me to aqua therapy....hope it helps

      1. First it was Humira. It did not work, I felt worse. Went through a couple of others that did not help or I could not tolerate them. Now I've been on Cosentyx for about a year and I can tolerate it. It does nothing for my pain, but if it is helping to keep inflammationdown, then it's worth it.

        1. It's a good thing we have options! Glad to hear Cosentyx is doing it's thing. I think that's a good perspective to have, but I hope you're able to find some relief for your pain as well. Thanks for sharing and being a part of the community! Best, Anthony (Team Member)

      2. I’m on cimzia now but have been a few others over the last 9 years.

        1. Thanks for sharing.
          How are things going since you've been on Cimzia?
