Has anyone had success w/ Orencia? I've tried Enbrel & Humira with little help. My Rheumy is switching me to Orencia wkly. injections. The side effects really scare me, but this class of medication does come with a lot of risks. The winter weather in Indiana is killin me!! I stay in a constant flare up w/ RA and fibro.
~Just curious if nyone has had luck with Orencia. Any input would be much appreciated!

Re: Orencia

I have been on Orencia for over 4 years and it has been wonderful. I almost forget I have RA. I've had very few side effects and after about the first year, felt like I had none anymore.

I'm doing well enough I'm coming off disability and going back to work.
