Anyone had a biologic therapy?
something that is of interest to me is if anyone's had a biologic therapy infusion and what results they saw and how long did it take to see a difference?
Hi @ocean thanks for the post.
This is something that we have a number of previous questions about, mainly in relation to Rituximab, one of the main biologic therapy infusions.
One of these threads is below:
Here is also a link to information on Rituximab.
I hope this helps.
Thank you. Rituximab is the infusions i had but sadly seen no improvement in my symptoms. It's been 4 weeks since the second infusion and i had hoped things would improve more than they have.0
I’m a newbie here but have had RA for 40 years. I think my Rituximab took a while to kick in. I had just 7 months between my first and second rounds but a year since then and it has been effective.
And I know it’s horrible being left with the pain. I hope it works for you soon1
