 2  RA Started having numbness and a little tingling in my extremities, hands and feet as well as. Nasty bruises at the injection site. I believe the medication is not lasting as long as it used to 6 yrs is a long time. Notified Simponi regarding these issues but was not concerned. Think before going down this road. Thanks have a great day..... Simponi needs to listen to its patients M 55 6 years

 2  Psoriatic arthritis Headaches daily, increased psoriasis, redness of the face as well as psoriasis on my face, inflammation around my eyes and irritation, extreme fatigue, increased joint and muscular pain . Have had a terrible cough for two months now. Only works for two weeks and works great and immediately however it wears off and I get extreme flares for the rest of the month and extreme pain and immobility. Have had to take prednisone for the last week as its unbearable. Am on methotrexate 20mg a week don't think it's doing anything. F 45 5 months

 3  RA My severe & constant RA pain and stiffness almost completely disappeared! I was 90% back to normal. I recommend simponi to everyone as it was once a month and self injector barely hurt. Then it happened at 1 year.....terrible psoriasis...4 types all over my body. Psoriasis on hands and feet cracked, bled and limited me more than RA. All went away within 3 months off simponi except terrible hand/foot type that required a year of PUVA light therapy to clear. F 47 1 years

 4  PsA Sinus headaches that may be related, but not certain. This has made a significant improvement in my life. I feel like a normal human being again and can do many of the activities I previously enjoyed. I do notice that by the third week I begin to feel stiffness and pain in various joints. F 41 1.8 years

 4  rheumatoid arthritis No side effects Only problem I've had with it is that it tends to wear off. A dosage of once every three weeks would be ideal. It's helped me a lot!!! I was scared to try it but found it to work well and to have no side effects- have only had a cold or two in a year. Don't hesitate to try it. F 58 1 years

 4  Rheumatoid Arthritis none This is my 3rd biological DMARD I've tried and it's worked great for me. I had bad injection site reactions to Enbrel and Humira, so I was pretty excited that this one was a keeper. It has also worked to keep my RA at bay as well. F 30 8 months

 3  Lupus Couldn't even feel the injection. Couldn't really tell if the medication helped either because I've been on steriods nearly the whole year. I do still have flares but they seem a lot more manageable. F 35 1 years

 2  rheumatoid arthritis I just administered my 2nd injection. This is a once a month TNF drug. Definitely pain at injection site but only for a couple of minutes. I use the prefilled syringes once monthly. Have not noticed any other side effects however I have not noticed any improvement either. As a matter of fact my hands are actually getting worse. I am not currently on Methatrexate. I go back to rheumy on Mon. July 13 so we shall see what she says. I know they say sometimes it takes a month or 2 to start to see any benefit so... hopefully next month I will be able to increase my rating on this drug. F 46 2 months
