Hi, I'm a dolphin lover and a life long learner. I just started taking Orencia for my fight with RA which has been an on going battle for three years. I've tried numerous other RA drugs to no avail.

I have been on Orencia since January and have had mouth sores a few times since starting it is like red and some times like a little pus pocket can any one tell me how the are treating these it seems to be very painful..
I started Orencia in January. About 2 months ago I began getting ringing in my ears. I am a male 71 years of age. I have made adjustments in my other meds in order to narrow down the cause. My other meds never caused this problem so I am thinking its the Orencia.
I'd like to know if any of you who get orencia infusions are also taking phentermine? I gained a ton of weight from when I was on steroids (1 1/2 yrs) need help and phentermine seems like the best solution to kick start a diet. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
