My teenage daughter has been on Anakinra injections for 3 years. She finds these very painful. Last year she tried a toc injection for the first time, unfortunately a few hours later she felt sick and was poorly for the rest of the night. She had a blood test the next day which showed low neutrophils and she was admitted to hospital. She went back on to Anakinra due to this reaction and would like to try toc again.

Has anyone else had this experience with toc ? I've heard its very successful for a lot of people.

I would be grateful of any comments or advice.
