Benepali injections

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've been taking for 7 weeks and up to now have had no improvement in fact if anything I feel worse but rheumatologist tell me it can take up to 3 months to be effective. I have noticed however that I am constantly very thirsty / dry. Does anybody else have this symptom ?

    I was fortunate and responded quickly to Benepali with the first few weeks. I do get a dry mouth but had this prior to injections, due to numerous meds. I use a dry mouth mouthwash and find I can sleep through most nights. Persevere with the injections, my Rheumy said 3 months, but improvement continues for first 6 months
