Hi all -

My mom has started a new drug treatment for her Rheumatiod Arthritis. She has tried everything for it for the last 10 years. Since RA and SLE are both auto immune related I thought I would mention it on here to see if anyone has had any experience with it. It is a weekly injection that she gets in her knee. You get five injections spaced a week apart. Some patients get relief after only 3 injections but it can take up to five. If it is succesful the patient will see an improvement in pain for up to one year. I sure hope it works for her. She has taken a lot of the meds I see on here and though some work well, each one has it's own downfall to it.
