About SIMPONI ARIA®
For adults with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA), SIMPONI ARIA® used with methotrexate, as directed, has been proven to:
- help relieve the pain, stiffness, and swelling of RA
- help stop further joint damage
- help improve your ability to perform everyday activities with less difficulty
- help improve your physical and emotional well-being as measured by a general health assessment
Your results may vary.
How SIMPONI ARIA® is given:
As a short 30-minute infusion prepared and given by a healthcare professional through a needle placed in your vein, usually in your arm. Before the infusion, a doctor or nurse will assess your health—including checking your blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, and weight. He or she will monitor you throughout the infusion and for a period of time afterward.
After 2 starter doses, 4 weeks apart, SIMPONI ARIA® is given once every 8 weeks—that’s as few as 6 times a year.
The 30-minute infusion is prepared and given by a healthcare professional in your doctor’s office or at a local infusion center.
Your doctor should test you for TB and hepatitis B before starting SIMPONI ARIA®, and monitor you closely for signs and symptoms of TB during treatment. You should not receive SIMPONI ARIA® if you have an infection unless your doctor says it is okay.
Find a rheumatologist near you
It’s important to visit your doctor regularly to help monitor your moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Be open and honest about your symptoms, how they have changed since your last visit, and how they’re affecting your ability to perform everyday activities. This can help your rheumatologist determine which treatment option is right for you.
