I had my first injection on 18 Oct 2010, overnite pain was gone. I have had RA for over 15 yrs and the only drug I have done is Humira for 1 1/2. It wane out. I got my first shot from my doc for free to see what might happen. The only complaint is it rose my blood pressure way up and that caused headaches. Now the weird part is I not going to get another shot due to these reasons. Yet it has been a month and I still feel great. I think it might have sent me into a remission or something. Wil tell after 2 more weeks. Try to post an updat then.

I have taken now 4 doses and over night with the first injection I felt totally better. I also take 2 other RA meds on a regular basis but this Simponi is wonderful. I have had RA since 1992.

I have tried Humira, Remicade ,Arava and none of them were effect I was on Enbrel which worked exceptional well but I had to change insurance and it would no longer pay for it so my Dr put me on simponi and it has worked very well

Been on everything on the books for RA for past 14yrs and Simponi has worked fairly well until recently. Have gone from 3 1/2 wks relief to just about a week and a half at most & back to adding Celebrex x2day. Never had any lumps in armpit as on reader posts but massive welt from time to time at injection site.

Comment from: Selinak, 45-54 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: August 09

I was diagnosed w/RA back in '94. I was on Humira which was virtually ineffective for me. My MD put me on Methotrexate and Simponi and I've been taking it for the last 4 mos. I do feel much better but the other day I just noticed a large lump under my armpit which was not there before and I am nervous about it. I'm waiting for my doctor to see me. Has anyone noticed anything like this?

I have taken this drug for 3 months and have itching on my back only and have developed white colored (2) lesions looking like basal cell and seeing my Dermatologist this week for both items.
