Anyone on the AA which is given annually?

Posted , 2 users are following.

I started on the tablets but didn't like the rigmarole involved taking them. My rheumy doc suggested I take the equivalent drug by an infusion done annually. I had this about 4 months ago and all seems fine. But I have suddenly started getting itchiness which he thought could be a side effect of another drug I take for RA. Anyone on this annual drug?

    No, I would not take this. An annual dose would be more scary I suspect. I guess it is done now but maybe rethink it for next time?

      I understand what you say. I am not sure if I will have it again next time round but not because I found it scary. I didn't feel good on the weekly tablets so this felt better for me. But generally I wonder if I want to take any more of this drug at all. I have mixed feelings.

      Thank you. I will look at k2. I am sometimes overwhelmed with all the foods I am told to stop eating and the supplements I should take that I have begun to close my mind to all the well meaning advice. I am vegetarian and eat as healthy a diet as I can.

      Vitamin K2 is a good one because it puts the calcium onto the bones. It is overwhelming I agree with you.

      You just do the best you can,
