Hi All. Am due to begin a course of Abatacept - one of the few drugs I haven't yet had. I couldn't tolerate Infliximab or Etanercept as although my disease was amazingly well controlled, both drugs gave me Lupus as a side effect. I had Rituximab for two years but that produced adverse blood test results and so I had to come off that too. The consultant is worried that as I'm only on 6mgs of Prednisolone, my joints are being damaged and I need another heavy duty drug as I have had severe RA for 25 years. So Abatacept is being proposed. Wondered if anyone is on it and how you find it? Are there any horrible side effects? I shall be self injecting which is fine but would like to hear of anyone's good or bad experiences. Many thanks in advance.
