RemicadeRemicade (infliximab) also inhibits the actions of TNF, though it does it differently. This drug is really an antibody against the TNE It is made from both mouse and human protein. It is also called a monoclonal antibody because it is made from only one cell source.Remicade is given intravenously by a doctor or a nurse.The side effects are pretty similar to those experienced with Enbrel, but, in addition, your body can produce antibodies against the drug.You usually have to take another immunosuppressant like methotrexate to prevent the development of new antibodies.
Cortisone Cortisone is a steroid used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, but it should be used sparingly, since patients may become dependent on it.One of the great physicians of the past, Dr. Philip Hench, noted that cortisone was a “cure” for RA back in the 1940s. In fact, it was so good that everyone with RA started to take the drug -until its side effects became apparent.Cortisone will normalize the findings on X-rays. When the drug is stopped or decreased, however, there is the so-called rebound phenomenon, and the patient actually gets worse.This drug is given to treat the most severe forms of the disease, as when vasculitis or fluid around the heart with inflammation of the coverings of the heart is present. Occasionally, it is given to quell the severe pain and inflammation of a very hot joint. *38/141/5*
