You’ve just started KEVZARA.
So what’s ahead?

The first few weeks on a new medication can be filled with anticipation.

Will it work for me? How fast will it work? Will I feel side effects? Here are some pointers on what you might expect. And what to do.

How do you take KEVZARA?

KEVZARA comes in a pre-filled pen or pre-filled syringe that you self-inject once every 2 weeks. Depending on what you and your doctor decide, it can be taken with or without methotrexate.

How effective is KEVZARA?

KEVZARA, taken with methotrexate, has been proven to:

  • Relieve pain in as little as 2 weeks (for some, it may take up to 3 months)
  • Reduce tender and swollen joints
  • Slow the progression of RA and help protect the joints from further damage

What this means is that you may be able to perform those everyday activities that matter to you, like making dinner, going for a swim, even just taking a nice, long walk. Make sure you talk to your doctor before starting or changing your exercise routine.

Take note of any changes you might be feeling.

When you start a new treatment like KEVZARA, it’s especially important to notice how it’s affecting you. Tracking these changes will help you keep your doctor better informed about how KEVZARA is working for you. And it allows you both to determine the right balance of relief versus side effects.

If you do feel side effects that concern you, be sure to call your doctor right away. He or she will be able to determine if you need to adjust your treatment in any way.

Common side effects of KEVZARA include:

  • injection site redness
  • upper respiratory tract infection
  • urinary tract infection
  • nasal congestion, sore throat, and runny nose

These are not all the possible side effects of KEVZARA. Please also see the additional Important Safety Information below for more information on possible side effects, including risk of serious infections.
