ACTEMRA has been studied with and without methotrexate and other DMARDs in a number of clinical trials, which included over 4,000 people with RA.
70% of people taking ACTEMRA achieved an ACR20 response at 24 weeks. That means they saw a 20% improvement in their swollen and tender joint counts and other RA signs and symptoms. 53% of patients taking methotrexate alone achieved the same response.
So ACTEMRA has been proven to get results for people with RA. Now you may be wondering, “Great, but will it work well for me?” There’s only one way to find out. Ask your rheumatologist about ACTEMRA today.
Track your RA symptoms from day to day to get a clear picture of what’s going on.
Important Side Effect Information
Before starting ACTEMRA, tell your healthcare provider if you have had diverticulitis (inflammation in parts of the large intestine) or ulcers in your stomach or intestines. Some people taking ACTEMRA get tears in their stomach and intestines. This happens most often in people who are also taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroids, or methotrexate. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you have fever and stomach-area pain that does not go away and a change in your bowel habits.
