Hi,
I know you're not there at the weekends, but at my appt on Friday my rheumatologist said he would like me to try Golimumab? I had been on Humira and had a bad reaction (lung/breathing difficulties) and had to come off everything bar 25mg prednisolone.
Well, my lung has now healed, and I'm back on Methotrexate and as I say Golimumab is the new drug proposed for me to try but I don't know anything about it, can you help? any information about it would be good. Obviously you don't know if you are going to have a reaction to something unless you try it, as was the case with Humira, but I'm keen to find out a bit more about this new anti TNF.
Thanks helplines Xxxx

    Hi Simona,
    Thankyou so much for the link, I really appreciate your help. It's a bit scary trying another anti TNF after the Humira reaction, but I read the link and understand a lot more about Golimumab, hopefully it will be the right one for me :grin:
    Thanks again, you do a wonderful job of looking after us all I'm very grateful :grin:
