 1  Ulcerative Colitis Persistent sinus & upper respiratory infection, coughing to the point of passing out, dry eyes, dry mouth, aching parotid salivary glands, loss of smell. Do not take this!! I was almost dead in 9 months from it and the doctors wouldn't listen so I went off of it without telling them and gradually the upper respiratory issues subsided. I am left with permanent loss of smell and taste, I cannot produce tears or saliva, persistent cough, throat irritation and so much more. If you don't want your life ruined, don't take Simponi. Evil stuff!! M 46 9 months

 1  Psoriatic Arthritis Simponi made me suicidal Worst drug I ever took. I have never had suicidal ideation but this was horrible. I couldn’t control the thoughts and thankfully stopped the drug and the thoughts stopped. F 65 2 months
 1  Rheumatoid Arthritis First infusion of Simponi Aria dosed by weight(115 ib). 3 wks post infusion developed stroke level BP and tachychardia. Also had daily sinus headache, menopausal like hot flashes and extreme fatigue. Cardiac workup, Echo and Nuclear Stress test showed no congestive heart failure or heart blockages. I wore a holter monitor for 30 days which showed irregular arrythmia for which I'm now on medication and a second medication for elevated BP. Had no cardiac issues before this infusion. I've had RA for over 20 years and this is the sickest I've ever been with it. At about 2/12 months post infusion, I finally began to feel as well as I felt the day I went in for the infusion. F 74

SIMPONI ARIA  (GOLIMUMAB):  This medication is used to treat certain types of arthritis (such as rheumatoid, psoriatic, ankylosing spondylitis). Golimumab belongs to a class of drugs known as TNF blockers. It works by blocking a protein (tumor necrosis factor - TNF) in your body's immune system that causes joint swelling and damage. Golimumab helps slow joint damage and reduce joint pain/swelling so you can move better.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
