It's good,you have relief from RA pain due to Inj. Orencia. Your problem is now, the serious upper respiratory infection.
The injection Ornecia is known to cause respiratory infection . Please note following things -
- The chances of infection are more if it is accompanied by TNF antagonists for treating RA.
Natural TNF antagonists are present in Turmeric,Green tea. THese are to be avoided while you are on Ornecia.
- Ornesia also activates latent Tuberculosis, Which needs to be taken care of.
So also, certain fungal infections florish with use of Ornecia .
** - Sometimes, Ornecia needs to be withdrawn if the infection is really serious.
For a proper management please be under care of a chest physician.You will need investigations & close observation for the control of your present condition.
After assessment of the causative factor, a manageble infection may take 1 to 6 months for a complete control.
