Hi there...if u R suffering from ank spond then u have to be on pain killers like naprosyn which is harmful and one day will knok off ur kidneys... Biologicals are good option and is given under proper supervision to minimise the side effects .. Although cost is an issue... But if u can afford , plz choose biologics as it will relieve yous symptoms to a great extent .. Wish u a speedy recovery.
