Recently my rheumatologist who did not like my complaint that Humira made me too dizzy, jittery and weak in the legs to function. I was only on the medicine for 8 weeks but missed a lot of life during those two months. So he wants to try Enbrel. Won't that be about the same as far as reaction/side affects. And what about Remicade. I am hearing good things about that drug as far as interactions/side affects. Am I being an oversensitive baby or what? I have always been sensitive to medicine. Over the counter meds sometimes cause me to feel dizzy or jittery
Everyone reacts to medications differently. I can take high doses of pain medications and they seem to do nothing, but others I know are knocked on their butts with the smallest dose. :). I’ve tried enbrel and humira and am currently on Remicade. All these medicines are in the same classification of medicines but are all a bit different. Remicade works for me with minimal side effects but I never really experienced side effects on the other meds either. I would want to try something else too if you can’t function. It’s not worth giving up on things you enjoy and just your life in general! Best of luck with everything.
Enbrel and remicaide worked best n the beginning. Currently on AMG 827 which is a trial drug with good results
Say, MatthewMac, how have things been going for you? Long time no see.
