Hi All,

Just diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis and been recommended biologics. All new to me. Just concerned to understand whether these drugs work. What is people's experience of taking them?

    Hi @vally and welcome to the online community,

    You’ve just been diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis and have been recommended biological. You’d be interested in to hear from others about their experiences taking the drug.

    You’ve certainly made a good first step contacting the community - many of our members with arthritis are on biologics and I’m sure will be very pleased to share their experiences with you.

    The Versus Arthritis website has got some useful information that you might be interested in reading as well. Many people have found that the drugs have been life-changing. Here’s an article about how the drugs work, and If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you’ll see two stories from people whose lives have been changed from using biologics.

    Do let us know how you get on,

    Anna ( Mod)
