Has anyone tried Simponi Aria yet?

Has anyone tried Simponi Aria yet?

I am waiting on the approval process for this. I've researched it so much and my doctor and I believe it is the right way for me to go due to anxiety with the Humira pen. I have been on Celebrex for the past year and I am in pain everyday and so fatigued. If anyone knows more about the Simponi Aria I would love to know your thoughts.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I just fear all the… read more

What are your experiences with Celebrex and Humera?

What are your experiences with Celebrex and Humera?

Hello everyone! I need some advice. I have Ankylosing Spondylitis and have a really hard time with anti-inflammatory meds. All of the nsaids that my Drs have given me to this point and the otc ones I've tried on my own have really done a nasty number on my stomach. So, today my new rheumatologist prescribed Celebrex for me saying that he has had some really good luck with it being better tolerated by patients with stomach issues like myself. We also discussed my… read more
