    I have been on Orencia for one year now for RA. I have never had tooth abcess's so bad my teeth needed to be extracted! Have had THREE molars in one year removed due to infection which erupted quickly and could not be controlled. I have emaculate dental hygiene and always have.
    after speaking with my rheumatologist about this at my dentist urging- she admitted it could be the suppression of immune system which allows bacteria to fester in gums. Great- she tells me this AFTER I loose all my chewing teeth!
    I feel this company ' Orencia" should have in BIG letters to users this fact. I would have NEVER gone on this med if I was alerted of this.

    Hello, I'm new here. Have developed COPD while on Orencia.
    Maybe because I am a former smoker. Anything else I could try for RA? Thanks.

    I took a holiday from Orencia for about a month. Was taking Phentermine at smallest dose and my appetite was suppressed considerably. Started up Orencia again because my RA was getting quite active, and the Phentermine is no longer working, even after doubling the dose. I'd love to know if anyone found a solution that is working, even a little.

    I am having tons of infections and dry mouth because I can't breathe because my nose is so stopped up.
    Saw and ENT and had a cat scan of the face. Said everything looked pretty normal but did have a sinus infection on the opposite side where the stuffiness is. Now I have an infection in my tooth from a loose crown and bacteria. Any ideas on who to see to ease this irritation?
