    kineret

    Is anyone on this? I'm most probably going to have to switch from Humira since humira exacerbates MS, which I was just diagnosed with. What are the side effects and issues anyone has had with Kineret? Thanks!!

    Re: kineret

    Just found your question. I have been on Kineret for about 12 weeks. The swelling in my hands has gone down. I still find it somewhat painful when injected, but am told that will end. I sure hope so. Out side of the injection site problem there have been no side effects.

    I am immune dificient so the Doc. chose kineret because it cause less problems.

    Thanks for your reply. I'm still between meds right now, trying to figure out if I will stay off the Humira or need to start another drug.
