Change can be
a good thing
when it helps
you feel better.

With rheumatoid arthritis (RA), your body changes over time.

These changes can affect you in ways you never thought, making easy, everyday activities more difficult.

You’ve tried multiple ways to relieve the pain. Then your doctor may have prescribed corticosteroids and methotrexate to try to relieve your symptoms.

Over time, those solutions may not have been enough.

Most doctors initially prescribe a biologic known as a tumor necrosis factor inhibitor (TNFi) , like Enbrel® (etanercept) or Humira® (adalimumab).

If your TNFi stops working, doesn’t work as well as it used to, or if your body can’t tolerate it, a different type of biologic may help.

Maybe it’s time to talk with your doctor about another approach.

Studies have shown that taking another TNFi may not be as effective the second or third time around. So instead of trying another TNFi, a different type of biologic may help. An IL-6 receptor blocker may be that different approach to consider. KEVZARA is an IL-6 receptor blocker.
