- Hair loss with enbrel
I have been on Enbrel for 4 months and started seeing significant hair thinning at the second month of treatments (50 mg once per week). My Rhuematologist suggested 800 mcg of folic acid. I am still losing hair although I am feeling so much better.
- Humira: my experience
I have had some form of arthritis probably since birth. My father and maternal grandfather had some form of arthritis. I began to realize pain in both ankles if I stood or walked too long.
I began taking many NSAIDs when I was around 22. I've done gold, prednisone (twice), plaquenil, butazoidin, sulfasalazine, etc. My best results came with methotrexate after I got cellulitis in my knee (scratch it while kayaking in the summer, fiberglass boat). It dropped my sed rate from over 100 to 35 or so within a few months. I continued with MTX from 1977 to 2000 when my MD suggested Enbrel and stopping MTX. That was a VERY bad decision. Enbrel appeared to mask the disease for a few years. I had my left MCP replaced in 2004, my right heel debrided in 2010, and both my TMJs replaced in 2012. I strongly believe that if I had kept with the MTX it would have delayed those changes. Additionally, in 2011 I was in a bus crash returning from RAGBRAI. I got knocked out from three to six minutes. I had a nasty concussion that lasted 2+ years. Towards the end of the third year post accident I started exercising more aggressively. After doing several 40, 50, and 60 miles rides, I took a leisurely 50 mile ride around Boston at night. Two days later I had a spinal edema. So much for biking and other active sports! :-(
I have continued with MTX. Late 2013 my MD increased my MTX to .8/week. I had been taking .6/week. I stopped taking Enbrel and switched to Humira in early 2014. I took it for a few months before my doc and I realized it was not doing any better than Enbrel. I tried Humira for three months but it did not seem to work any better than Enbrel. In early June I stopped Humira and waited a few weeks before I started Otezla. I stopped Oterzla on 9/15/14 because it made me depressed and allowed my morning stiffness to get much worse.
I started prednisone again from the start of July. By mid-August I told my MD that I was screaming louder than I ever had; my dog was very startled. I stopped it gradually over the next two weeks. Meanwhile, the Otezla made me feel awful.
My MD is going to get me onto another injectable that I take monthly. I forget its name.
- Not a great experience
I was on norvasc for two months and had to go off because of severe swelling of feet and legs. Also rapid heart beat and very profuse sweating. it was horrible. It also raised my blood pressure. after going off BP dropped by @least 10 points both diastolic and systolic.
- Celebrex is absolutely terrible (1 response)
I got a three-day trial pack from my doctor on July 12. On July 13, I got my period, which lasted eight days and was extremely heavy and painful (and I usually have to switch out super-plus tampons and an overnight pad every 6-7 hours, so heavier than that is impressive). No pain relief for my hips/knees/back.
I finally got insurance sorted out a week and a half later and started my 30-day supply. I got my period (again! And once more heavy and painful!) on July 30, and am currently on day 8. No sign of it slowing or stopping. Still no pain relief, and it's been close to two weeks. I can't take my Tramadol or ibuprofen, and all I'm getting out of the Celebrex is weight gain, worsening depression, and period problems.
If there was a rating system on this site, Celebrex would get as close to negative points as it would allow.
- Who cares about the patient? (1 response)
I can't believe I'm still alive but quality of life is greatly diminished and no one cares. Not one doctor cares about how this one dr. prescribed all these drugs over a period of 5 years and I lost everything. I flat-lined sept 18, 2005 and was told by dr there in er that I would live 1-5 years and I had just lost my job as letter-carrier of over 17 years and my daughter was killed in dec of 2000, which I will always feel great responsibility because I knew I should have called her, it would have saved her life as she was killed in the firdale village apt fire and she didn't live there, she lived with me she was only 20 years old. So this crappy dr steven a creelman of seattle just kept throwing pills at me, telling me there was nothing wrong with any of the pills just me. I feared dr's and still do, I know they are just people and most people are good and caring but a lot are not. The Celebrex started after I was hit by a truck on the job in march of 2000. I will admit it relieved some pain but I had side affects immediately, within days to weeks. I was told by the crappy dr to shut up and take them as he originally told me they were not anti-inflamatorys but a new drug that did not upset stomach but they did. I felt trapped because it was an L&I and I didn't want to lose my job and so healthy and strong figured w/PT and rest I could overcome the accident pain which was lower back and neck well I couldn't sleep from pain and stomach but I couldn't tell crappy dr it would do no good. My daughter was killed Christmas night and that's a very hard one. I went back to work because my job was most of my life and I had friends at work. I continued to have more problems from Celebrex and I thought my stomach was on fire, it was blood clots that broke lose and I had to have an operation on my small instestine and what was worse is creelman, the crappy dr, when he told me it was an emergency umbililical hernia I told him I was going to get papers from owcp DOL as I would be off work at least 6 weeks. He said NO!!!!!!!!!! He closed the door and told me no, no I won't say it's from Celebrex when He really did know it was. I had an endoscopy 6 months later and that specialist said no more Celebrex. After that operation I just never felt good again I was swelling up my legs etc and fatique all kinds of not feeling good things and I was pissed at the crappy dr who by the said to me that no other dr would diagnose any different or believe me. So, it was in July of 04 and I was so sick I just went in there andhe was on vaction so another dr ran a bunch of blood tests for hiv which I told her was impossible and lupus and a few other things but no one there looked at any of the drugs except the pain medication which ironically was one of the only ones that didn't contribute to dvt & PE. when creelman got back I was still so sick I had left work and said I would be back in 2 weeks after I had some PT and rest. I couldn't sleep. That's when he prescribed REMERON. It was for sleep which it did help but I gained 50 lbs and within a couple months acquired tonsillitis, bhroinchitis, pneumonia, Phlebitis and a dvt which instead of referring me to a specialist he just presibed me an anti-inflammatory and another anti-depressant plus all the drugs He gave tons of samples which were never in noted in my files. I think he should have to pay me MONEY!! I have none since I have no job and I feel so terrible I wish I could just have my job back. And my Daughter but my health has been a Hematologist and injectable blood thinners. I hate the state of wash medical care about doctors but not the patients and I have no money to sue and it has been my experience not to mention crappy doctor SO WHO DO THE PATIENTS THAT ARE BADLY AFFECTED BY CRAPPY DCTORS GO TO? Oh I also couldn't be in the class-action suit because I didn't flat-line from heart attack. REALLY?

From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have had insomnia off and on all my life until I turned 40 and the I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis and I was tired all the time and I was sleeping a lot for me and it was good to be able to sleep. The doctor put me on Methotrexate and Enbrel and I could still sleep not as much as before I started the drugs but better than before when I was younger. I went on and off the Enbrel and Methotrexate over the years. I took Adipex for about six months this year for weight loss and that is when I started taking Benadryl to sleep, after I stopped the Adipex and started the Enbrel again my insomnia is worse, I take 2 Benadryl and a 0.5 Xanax every night to sleep and most nights I still don't get to sleep before 1am and many nights even later, I get up at 7am everyday no mater what time I get to sleep and most of the time I am not tired when I wake up, it just really bothers me not being able to sleep when everyone else does.

Can the Celebrex cause the pylori
From this study (5 months ago):
When anything cold touches my skin I get a hive in that location. Cold weather causes my skin that is exposed to get extremely red, itchy, and most of the time develop hives. All of this started after I began humira. I remained on humira for only 6 months due to its ineffectiveness. I am now on Simponi and the urticaria is still present.
