Medications of the Moment

Right now I am only being treated by one major drug:

A once monthly infusion of Orencia.

After trying most, if not all of the current biologic medicines on the market for RA in the past 10+ years, this one seems to be working ok. I say that with a little scepticism because I have been on this ride before. A medicine works well for a while (if I’m lucky) and then stops working or slowly declines and I flare.

Here we are though, almost two years in I am hoping it keeps doing what its meant to do. Not to make it sound like a miracle drug…because by no means am I pain-free or is it side effect free.

Added in June 2011: Celebrex for my neck and back pain. We will see if I keep up with this. Not a huge fan of taking daily medicines. But the thought of no pain is pretty tempting!!
