Need a new RA med....

I'm currently on Simponi monthly injections and I take Etodolac when needed. Recently Simponi has stopped working and I'm starting to have flare ups again. How long until the biologics stop working anyway?

Methotrexate gave me a lung infection plus some other side effects such has horrible depression and hair loss. Tried Enbrel for 3 weeks and couldn't handle it. I felt terrible the entire time I was on it. As soon as I stopped, I started feeling better.

I'm curious as to what my doc would have me do after Simponi. I can't say I'm looking forward to it considering my first two experiences.

So what's next?
