Speak w/ your Doctor: Only you and your physician can make the final decision as to which medicatinos may or may not be right for your situation. All medications have known side effects. As long as the good effects significantly outweigh the bad effects, then you may condsider Kineret (anakinra) as a reasonable option for treating your rheumatoid arthritis.

Is it bad to use the arthritis drug ANA kinra (kineret) when it hasn't reached room temp?

Anakinra: No, there is no harm caused by injecting Anakinra before it warms to room temperature however the injections are more painful and absorption may be slightly slower because the blood vessels constrict when they are cold.
