Is there a difference between remicade and simponi (golimumab)?

Ask rheumatologist. A patient can ask her rheumatologist about how the doctor chooses one over the other. They are the same type of medication, with simponi (golimumab) the newer one. They should have the same effects in patients. There may be differences in cost, availability, and insurance coverage. The rheumatologist would know more about possible side effects for her individual patient.
See details. There are several difference but the only real one of importance is simponi (golimumab) is given subq and Remicade is given iv. They are both very effective.
