Welcome Dustin! It is a great community of support.

I haven't taken Simponi but we have a friend who does. He got quick wonderful relief and says he has not had any side effects. I hope it works like that for you.

I didn't do well with MTX, Remicade, Humira, etc. I took Imuran for years for my Lupus and all of a sudden out of the blue developed an allergic reaction so I am not taking anything at this time except Plaquenil for Lupus.

Best wishes to you for relief with the Simponi. Come back often and let us know how you are doing.

Blessings.
Possi

I am taking it now, but might be switching. WHen it works, it works good. I had some good months, but they are a thing of the past. It kicked in by 4th week of the first dose (last June) and in 3 months, was doing pretty well. It has always seemed to run out of steam before the month was up. This winter, it seems to run out 5 days before end of month, then takes a few days to get back up to speed. So after 9 months, I may be switching since I can't see all that cost for 2/3 of the month relief.

Another member, Drizzit (and his son) are on it and doing great after after 2-3 years. Maybe he will chime in.
