Hi I am a newbie have had Psoratic arthritis for far too many years! Was originally diagnosed 30 years ago with arthritis and then it was named after about 5 years. I had really good periods whilst being pregnant but has now come back worse than ever. I Inject methotrexate once a week and Imraldi every fortnight. I was switched from Humira to Imraldi at Christmas and am beginning to wonder if it is as effective! Has anyone else noticed a deterioration when switching? Thanks for reading

    Hello from me too :D I have RA and OA but I get by well on meth and hydroxy.

    I assume your new med is one of the bio-similars. We've had the occasional person on here who didn't feel comfortable about the change but I'm not sure they still look in. And it wouldn't necessarily be the same bio-similar anyway. I think you can only see what your rheumatology team say. How are your bloods? Have they changed?
