    simponi side effects

    lulabelle37 posted:
    I just had one injection of simponi and within hours it started working beautifully but at the same time I became very congested in my head and in my ears and this is now turning into a constantly runny nose. The congestion/runny nose has lasted for about 2 weeks now and I'm definitely not sick. Is this a normal reaction?

    Hi lulabelle37,

    Here are the side effects we have listed for Simponi . To be safe you might want to call your doctor or pharmacist to see if your congestion and runny nose could be related to Simponi or if something else may be at fault.

    Best wishes,
    Atti
