 1  RA Terrible Migraine That WOULD NOT go away. It started minutes after starting the IV and grew worse through out the day. After my second infusion my headache was so bad I went to the ER and they couldn't find anything wrong. They gave me major pain killers but nothing worked. I stopped taking the meds and it took about 2 months for the pain to go away. I would NEVER take this drug EVER again. F 21 2 months

 3  rheumatoid arthritis Some redness at the IV site after administration. Otherwise, well tolerated. It's a bit bothersome to have an IV medication-- just because of the time factor, IV, etc. If you can, have the infusion at a private office. I've had the infusions in a hospital outpatient center, and each infusion takes about 1 1/2 hours because it takes an hour for the medication to come from the hospital pharmacy. BE SURE to go to the Orencia website--- www.orencia.com to sign up for the promise program before your FIRST infusion and they will pay your co-pays for the first few months. You can find the infusion schedule on that website also. I have been on several other medications Humira, plaquenil, Arava and have not had success in controlling my RA with them. I can't tell much difference yet however with the orencia. F 32 1 months
