For Rheumatoid Arthritis “It made me extremely nauseous.”

For Rheumatoid Arthritis “I had had success with Actemra, but at the 11 month mark, I had a heart attack and an upper GI bleed, both believed to be caused by the Actemra. So, we changed to Orencia, primarily because it has a lower incidence of side effects. It did take 5-1/2 months for the Orencia to start working, but it is now working well, and I feel like it continues to improve. I do take it in combination with methotrexate. I have not had any side effects. I am very pleased by how much Orencia has helped me.”

For Rheumatoid Arthritis “Unfortunately Orencia did not work for me. I waited six months to see if it would work. It did nothing for me, but at least I didn’t have any side effects from it. I wish they could come up with a test to figure out what medication will work for who. It’s terrible wasting time waiting for something that may never happen.”

For Rheumatoid Arthritis “I had the worse experience with this Orencia medicine. I kept waiting for the six months that they said it takes to work. In the process, I got worse than ever . It not only didn’t work but made me worse. I was so mad that I waited so long in vain. I will never try another medication that supposedly take that long to work.”

For Rheumatoid Arthritis “I have been on Orencia for 3.5 years and diagnosed 4 years ago. I am so thankful that I responded so well to this medication. Orencia was the first medication and hopefully, the last. Since my first infusion, in 2013, and the symptoms were finally being held at bay, I have not had any issues to date. I, whole heartily, 100% recommend Orecina. It saved my life and gave me my life back. I hope it’ll do the same for you.”

For Rheumatoid Arthritis “I’ve been doing the infusion for three months now. It hasn’t improved any of my symptoms at all. Day of infusion I get severe low back/hip pain & I’m exhausted. The two days following I sleep a lot & feel awful.”
