The rheumatologist I'm seeing for Behcet's has prescribed canakinumab during the last appointment. It might not be covered by insurance, and if it will be, it will take a long time to get it approved.

Has anyone had experience with this biologic or with the other IL-1 inhibitor, anakinra? Their safety profiles are concerning.
