3 doctors agree
In brief: Other Rx
Even though tnfs did not help, there are other biologic agents which have shown good results.
One drug is Kineret (anakinra) which works on il-1 ( interleukin-1) instead of tumor necrosis factor (tnf). Be sure to let your rheumatologist know that you are still in pain and that you cannot taper off the steroids.
