    i startted on Embrel Sept. 2011 it took approx 3 months before i saw any positive effects, ihave had chest inf. and 2 flare ups, what bothers me most is constant nausea and dry heaving and fatigue, the pain is managable now but my quality of life is not very good as i am too tired to do much of anything although this is preferable to the pain, i feel as if i am between a rock and a hard place!

  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • I started out taking Methotrexate tablets with Folic Acid and Meloxocam. The Nausea and Vomiting would last for three days and I couldn't get out of bed. The Rheumatologist switched me to Methotrexate Injections and told me to stay on the Folic Acid and Meloxocam and the nausea would ease up. However, it did not. I would take my injections on Monday and still spent 2 1/2 to 3 days with my head in the trash can and unable to get out of bed. When I finally did get to feeling better, it was time to start over again. Then after 16 weeks of treatment I developed 23 lbs of cysts on my ovaries and had to have the ovaries, tubes, and cysts removed. I lost six teeth while taking the medication. The exhaustion never eased at all. After 16 weeks, I stopped the medication to have the partial hysterectomy. My Rheumatologist then wanted me to start on Humaria injections. Humaria comes with a warning that if you have ever had cancer you shouldn't take this medication. I previously had cervical cancer and discussed this with my physician. His response: "Well...if you get cancer from taking this medication then it is just your bad luck." Needless to say I was speechless. I have not started taking the Humaria and am off the Methotrexate, Folic Acid, and Meloxocam. My swelling and pain symptoms are worse and I am still very tired (but I also have Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and Sleep Apnea) but I know longer have my head in the trash can and do not spend three days at a time in bed.
