Hello. I am presently on Humira ( once a week injection ) It has worked some what for me, but not great. Orencia is another option for me. Just wondering if anyone out there has experience with it? I am also taking MTX and low dose of Prednisone too. My main prob. is inflamation in my knees, i just can't find anything to really work well...:confused:

Hey. I feel like I'm writing the same thing over and over but if it works, you keep on saying it.. :-)
I'm on Orencia and have been since around February 2010. I was on Humira before that and started Orencia when the Humira stopped working for me. It seemed like the Orencia wasn't going to work but after about 6 months of being on it, I could really start to see the difference. I take Imuren as well as the Orencia and so far, so good (knock on wood). For me, the inflamation and joint pain combined would knock me down for the count on bad days. I have RA throughout my body. Orencia lets me get up and do and I've been doing just that since the Orencia kicked in. Hope this helps.
