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. I have been taking Adalimumab (Exemptia) since July 2019 in a gap of around 4 months, depending on the flare up.

    1. This is number 5 for me:

      1. Remicaide
      2. Orencia
      3. Actermeria
      4. Cimizia
      5. Simponi
      6. Rituxan

      I liked Remicaide and Rituxan best


      1. 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?

      2. 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)
