A Drug That’s Working
Last updated: November 2023
Rinvoq is very strange. But after almost two years without a working drug, I am starting to remember what life was like without chronic pain, despite my efforts, controlling much of my life ... even having cognitive deficiencies.
Rinvoq is strange ... I have to take the daily pill - plus or minus twenty minutes from the same time. If I miss that time by an hour ... I’ll have a VERY bad day.
The weekend before last, I slept in ... Sat and Sunday. I take Rinvoq at 5:30 each morning. Waking up close to seven meant I was outside the window. Those days were lost.
Sunday afternoon I was convinced it already stopped working ... but nope ... my lost days were because I took the pill 1.5 hours late.
Last Sunday, I took the pill at 5:30 ... as scheduled. Except we had rolled the clocks back ... so I was an hour off. My day was lost ... out of control pain.
Rinvoq is strange but I am thanking God for it working so well.
How much does nutrition matter?
Side point ... I had a BK burger 1/2 hour later and the pain was crazy bad - I left the office and went home. An RA friend told me she could not eat BK ... or Hardees(?) because of a tenderizer they use ... I don’t know. I had a McD burger today - no reaction. So ... no more Whoppers
Have you struggled to afford your RA medications?
