Hi Lynn, So sorry to hear about the breast cancer, I do hope everything works out well for you. I have no knowledge of otezia and hope someone that is one it will come on and let you know. I know rituximab took a while to work for me. Perhaps you could ask the Reumatology Dept what to expect with this drug or call one of the arthritis helplines. Keep your chin up, better days ahead xx
