SIMPONI: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Rheumatoid Arthritis “I have had Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) 49 years. I have tried every biologic there is and Simponi has been the first drug to work for me within a few hours. I take simpono and self inject every 2 weeks, I also take low dose prednisone. I was diagnosed at age 6, have many replaced joints and still some active joints with severe RA. I have been on Simponi for 18 months now, even though I have never had a remission, my symptoms have been the most controlled on this drug! :)Pray it keeps working this well.”

For Psoriatic Arthritis “I was on Remicade infusion for 7 years, I had wonderful results for 6 years, with PSA flares slowly creeping back in the 7th, but not unmanageable. Rheumy switched me to Simponi. After 2 injections, while my skin is still clear, the PSA is raging. I am in terrible pain. I spoke the my Rheumy once and she said to give it a chance. Calling her again this morning. The pain and exhaustion is debilitating and affecting every aspect of my life.I asked he about Taltz and Cosentyx but she wanted to keep me on a TNF blocker. I’m ready for change.”

For Rheumatoid Arthritis “I started Simponi Approx 1 year ago. I was first on methotrexate for about a year but developed a really bad cough and scarring on lungs. I then was put on Remicade which took away every pain I had but on third infusion, I had an allergic reaction so I had to be taken off. Now I am on Simponi and by the third infusion, I have had no pain at all and no side effects. I am on Medicare which pays for 80% and my UHC which pays the 20%…so I feel really lucky.”

For Psoriatic Arthritis “Worked ok on aches and pains but really messed with me mentally. Made me very depressed and socially withdrawals. I feel more fatigue and lot of headaches.”

For Rheumatoid Arthritis “I’m a mid to severe RA patient. I have RA for about 4.5 years. I was quickly diagnosed. Less then 6 months I was prescribed Simponi. In Canada my doctor got me lined up for Simponi and once I started they will give it to me free of charge. The drug company pays for it. I am very lucky. I have been in remission for since I started it 4 years ago. Colin”
