I have tried multiple biologics before with limited success. My RA MD wanted me to try Simponi but my insurance is forcing me to try Kevzara.

Has anyone tried Kevzara?
If so how did you handle it?
Did it work for you?
Comments or complaints?

Please help.

Do you have both RA and AS? Wikipedia says: "Development [of Kevzara] in ankylosing spondylitis has been suspended after the drug failed to show clinical benefit over methotrexate in a phase II trial."
