Hello, I've been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis since last 15 years. I've gotten bone deformities already in my limb and partly my wrists. I've been suggested to go for Intacept 25 mg injections, but also cautioned about its side effects. kindly suggest me if I should go on with the injection or stick to current medication, which has proved to be futile.
