CreakyJoints and the Global Healthy Living Foundation invite you to understand self injected medications with this orientation video for Rheumatoid Arthritis patients. Here, we profile the functional use of auto-injectors, and orient patients and caregivers to their ease. This non-commercial video provides an objective view, utilizing input from medical professionals (doctors, nurse and health psychologist), of how these devices have revolutionized self-injection, including highlighting the benefits of these new innovations. This informative CreakyJoints video dispels the myths of auto-injectors, allays fears and aims to familiarize patients with these devices. Patients who are prescribed an injected biologic for the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis (or related autoimmune disease) have questions about their treatment, its mechanism and continue to seek an orientation about the way it works. Medical professionals, including physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants have a limited amount of time to orient the patient about the delivery of their medication, and patients are left with unanswered questions. We hope this video serves to orient you and your caregivers about the novel treatments and the innovation that makes self-injection an easy, virtually painless process. Once you have viewed the video, log on to http://www.CreakyJoints.org to discuss your reaction and share your strength and experiences with other members of the CreakyJoints community.

**PLEASE NOTE** The area was cleaned with alcohol before I did this injection! Always clean the injection area prior to injecting!! I use Enbrel pen injection to slow the destruction of Rheumatoid Arthritis and help reduce the severity of its side effects. Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto immune disease that causes damage to every part of the body including organs.

When I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis I was very afraid of having to give myself injections. I'm sharing this video with you so that you will see how relatively easy it is to use the Simponi injection pen and that similar pens will also be pretty painless as well.

It is common for patients with rheumatoid arthritis and other rheumatic diseases to be prescribed methotrexate as part of their treatment. This video demonstrates the steps to safely self-inject methotrexate by a subcutaneous (under the skin) route, as shown by the expert nurses at the Kaye Edmonton Clinic in Edmonton, Alberta. Please note, this video should not replace in-person hands on education. For more information, go to www.EdmontonRheumatology.com.

Humira time is the new hammer time! Notes: Gotta rub the alcohol wipe in circles outward from center, to push dirt away. Check to make sure the liquid is clear and level with the line. I show the little lids or whatever to show how easy they make it--there's a 1 marked on the gray lid and a 2 on the red one. IDK if it even matters. ?? Hold the Humira pen to your skin at least 10 seconds. It will make a funny sucking sound at the end sometimes. YES, it hurts, but only a little bit. The needle is a tiny bite and the pain is mostly the pressure of the med being pushed in really fast. You can take the med out of the fridge and let it reach room temp before shooting, to minimize the sensation. The needle is really tiny and really short, cuz the drug just has to go under the skin, aka subcutaneous. Resist the urge to rub the spot after the shot, so you don't mess with the meds. As you can see, it's actually pretty easy, and I didn't make a sound even though I'm really squeamish and sensitive. These shots are really expensive but I'm blessed with health insurance, and most meds like these also have copay assistance programs, so it becomes very affordable. I do this every other week. The risked side effects aren't fabulous at all, so it's not ideal... not like healing my guts from the inside with my vegan diet. ;-) If you have questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Patients with Crohn's, ulcerative colitis and rheumatoid arthritis share the challenges of self-injecting their medications that go beyond the the needle. For some, the fear of needles requires someone else to administer for the patient or will cause them to miss a dose. Portal Instruments' system and device provides hope for these patients.

Biologic agents interfere with the harmful process of the Rheumatoid Arthritis disease by mimicking the natural substances your body produces on its own. Your doctor will only prescribe a biologic agent if you experienced serious side effects from Disease-Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drugs (DMARDs) treatment, or if DMARDs failed to effectively control your RA. Enbrel was the first biologic agent available to treat RA, with its properties attaching to Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF). Newer biologic agents, Humira and Remicade, now directly attack TNF. Kineret attacks receptors on your cells to protect your body from a dangerous substance called interleukin. All biologic agents must be injected, and require different dosing schedules. The positive effects of biologic agents usually appear within 2 to 6 weeks and often have fewer side effects than other RA medication. For information on other RA medication, click the link above.

https://emergencydrug.com/ Rheumatoid Arthritis Medications Tips Most people who have rheumatoid arthritis take some type of medication. Medications for RA typically fall into five categories: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs); steroids; disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDS); biologics; and janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors. When prescribing a medication, a physician will take into account the patient’s age, disease activity, and other medical conditions, but each patient is unique. Figuring out which medication or combination of medications work best for an individual can be challenging and often requires a process of trial and error. 1. NSAIDs Most people with RA are advised to take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug to decrease pain and inflammation. NSAIDs are sold over-the-counter, under such names as Advil and Aleve, as well as by prescription, under names such as Mobic and Celebrex 2. Steroids (Corticosteroids) Fast-acting steroids, such as prednisone, are particularly useful during initial treatment, before other RA medications have had a chance to take effect (often 12 weeks or more). One advantage of steroids is that they can be injected into joints. Injected steroids can provide targeted pain relief to one or two painful joints with limited side effects. Experts recommend taking the lowest possible dose of steroids and advise against relying on them longer than necessary. Steroids’ effectiveness often diminishes over time—meaning the longer a person takes a steroid, the less likely it is to relieve symptoms. In addition, people who take steroids continuously for several months or years can experience side effects such as weight gain, increases in blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. 3. Methotrexate and Other Traditional DMARDs Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) are used used to slow or stop rheumatoid arthritis by suppressing the immune system. The generic names for commonly used DMARDs include: Hydroxychloroquine Methotrexate Sulfasalazine Azathioprine Lefludomide Methotrexate is often the first drug prescribed for people newly diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. RA patients take this medication weekly, alone or in combination with other medications. High dose methotrexate is also used to treat some cancers. RA patients take significantly lower doses than cancer patients. 4. Biologics for Rheumatoid Arthritis This class of medications, called biologic response modifiers, is technically a subset of DMARDs. They may be used with traditional DMARDs or as an alternative to them. Biologics: Disrupt certain parts of the cascade of events that lead to RA inflammation and have the potential to stop the disease process. Increase a person’s risk of infection and tend to be expensive. Because of these potential downsides, biologics are used when methotrexate or other DMARDs prove insufficient or cause unacceptable side-effects. May become less effective and/or cause worsening side effects over time. The doctor and patient can work together to monitor changes and decide if and when switching medication is advisable. Biologics fall into four categories: Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors; Interleukin (IL) inhibitors; B-cells inhibitors; and T-cells inhibitors. These medications are administered by injection or infusion. Examples include Remicade, Enbrel, and Humira. Testing for Tuberculosis Before taking any type of biologic medication, a person must be tested for tuberculosis. People who have latent tuberculosis carry the Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacterium without having tuberculosis symptoms. If a person with latent tuberculosis takes immune-suppressing biologic medications the bacterium can multiply and cause symptomatic tuberculosis. 5. Janus Kinase (JAK) Inhibitors JAK enzymes are essential messengers in the immune system’s inflammatory process. When JAK enzymes bind with other cells, called X cells, they trigger inflammation. JAK inhibitors bind to JAK enzymes, preventing them from binding with X Cells and stopping the inflammatory process. The first FDA-approved JAK inhibitor is called Tofacitinib, and it is sold under the names Xeljanz and Xeljanz XR (extended release). As with biologic medications, people considering taking JAK inhibitors must have a tuberculosis test. People taking JAK inhibitors are advised to work with their doctors to monitor risks and side effects. Now you know the Rheumatoid Arthritis Medications.

Methotrexate is one of the anchor drugs in rheumatoid arthritis. It is one of the not preferred drugs it is a safe medication. The side effects are of 2 types, mild and severe side effects. In general the risks are minimal. In general, the mild side effects may include vomiting sensation, tummy pain, some people may experience e hair fall, the serious side effects include abnormality of the liver test and the effect on the blood counts, the bone marrow, so before starting on Methotrexate, the complete blood count is looked, it looks at the hemoglobin, the total count, the platelets, we do a kidney function tests to look at the creatinine and do a liver function test. We start the Methotrexate in people whom all these tests are normal and while on treatment also we periodically check these tests to minimize the effects of side effects.

I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis around 28 years ago and I have been researching, studying and learning about RA ever since. I created a blog (http://www.arthritis-cure.co.uk) to share my experience and modest knowledge in the hope that it may be of some benefit to others who are suffering from RA. I have read hundreds of books and papers on rheumatoid arthritis (and related fields such as nutrition) over the decades, as well as speaking with many hundreds of sufferers. With my blog I am trying to turn a devastatingly negative experience into a positive outcome by providing genuine first-hand information, perspective, useful advice (from all sources) and one or more potential solutions (from medical to complementary and everything in between, including my own diet). I filmed this video (with the kind permission of my rheumatologist) during my last knee treatment in order to show that the aspiration and injection process is very quick (around 2 minutes) and not at all painful. Hopefully this will help to allay any concerns or fears that people may have when approaching this type of treatment.

Update: 7/4/2018...After taking the injections for 6 years with adsistance as I had a phobia problem with needles. I learned that taking the sureclick pin out of the refrigerator 40 -45 min at room temp. Worked best. If it was still to cold the medicine burned more. I no longer iced my leg and the reaction also starts to go away as months-years went by and I didn't need The Benadryl. The burning pain is always there with enbrel..and or humira. Enbrel..stopped working for me after 2 years. Then I switched to humira until I got tired of the burning sensation it was worse that enbrel. I've been on the pill for almost a year now. I am now taking a pill called xeljanz. This works for me and works great! The side of my thighs for injections has always worked the best and I rotated thighs. Hope this helps you in any way. Good luck! Fyi- do not shake sureclick, do not drop avoid bubbles in the chamber. If bubbles put back in frig and use the other. If you drop it don't use it as I was told by enbrel..there is glass inside Injection. Always best to call enbrel..for questions and answers they are good about answering. They also provide you with free disposable canister for your sureclick, a travel kit for your surclick with an ice pack. Free of no charge.

This video explains what Rheumatoid Arthritis is in Hindi and how it is possible to move from standard treatment to Biologics. English and Hindi subtitles supported. There is a big social stigma around Rheumatoid Arthritis in South Asian communities. Research suggests South Asian people with RA are often forced to hide their condition due to society beliefs, misconceptions etc. Combined with language barriers, this can have a severe impact on their ability to receive accurate info and live a healthy life.

It’s estimated that about 1.5 million Americans suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and with such a large population suffering from a disease, it’s no wonder that big pharma has stepped up and offers a variety of different treatments, some more dangerous than the others. And one of the things that we are learning now is that one popular rheumatoid arthritis drug, actemra, is actually causing some very severe side effects that the company knew about allegedly but failed to warn consumers. Mike Papantonio discusses this. Learn more about this case here: https://www.levinlaw.com/actemra-lawsuit-lawyer

Low dose once weekly methotrexate is the gold standard treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis and other immune related diseases. It is usually give once a week as a tablet. However sometimes patients struggle to tolerate it or it is not effective. Giving the medication via a subcutaneous injection can be more effective and or have less side effects. Australia does not have PBS listed pre filled syringes of MTX so many patients give up on this medication and move to alternatives that are more costly.

Rheumatoid arthritis affects 1 in 100 Australians. It is a major cause of disability and psychological distress due to its chronic, painful and disabling character. Rheumatoid arthritis, an inflammatory autoimmune disease, is the second most common type of arthritis after osteoarthritis. The disease is more common amongst women and in the older age groups. Untreated rheumatoid arthritis can result in joint damage and deformities. The disease impacts on activities of daily living, capacity to work, and family life. Early diagnosis and medical intervention are critical to limiting structural damage and improving health outcomes. The Clinical Guideline for Diagnosis and Management of Early Rheumatoid Arthritis presents recommendations to assist and support clinical judgement of GPs in managing patients with rheumatoid arthritis. This program, in line with the Guideline, focuses on diagnosis, early management, and coordination of multidisciplinary care needs for people with rheumatoid arthritis. Pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions are reviewed. The Clinical Guideline recognises the need for every patient with rheumatoid arthritis to have a thorough assessment of their individual needs; access to a range of health professionals; and a comprehensive care plan. This program is one of four in the Musculoskeletal Guideline Series. The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) has developed national musculoskeletal clinical guidelines for general practitioners and other primary care health professionals for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis and osteoporosis.
