Because of its short half-life, KINERET must be injected daily. RA patients should receive a 100-mg injection around the same time each day.1
KINERET may take a few months to start working. Most RA patients who experience improvement see results within 3 months, though some patients continue to improve up to 6 months after starting treatment. It’s important to encourage your patient to continue their treatment plan to see if KINERET is right for them.1
