User Comments:


For Multiple Sclerosis “This medication works great for me it knocks out my optic neuritis quickly. It takes about a week to calm down my other relapse symptoms. It has allowed me to work during my relapses. The drug company paid my co pay so it cost me nothing.”

For Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis “Been on this medicine for 12 weeks and at first it was great and then here comes the side effects. Raised blood sugar, increase in sweating, bruising, skin discoloration where the injection site, itching at injection site, abdominal weight gain. Then of course the price of the medication. Insurance and the Achtar foundation covered the cost but still yikes.”

For Rheumatoid Arthritis “I have been on Acthar for about a year. It has been the first medicine since my diagnosis (12 years ago) that has helped me. My only concern is the long term side effects which are not known. It is expensive but I have not had to pay anything out of pocket with the help from the Chronic Disease Fund and my insurance.”
