On the website for Orencia,, it is noted that "ORENCIA may be used alone or in combination with methotrexate.", but you should discuss this with your doctor to figure out what is best for you.

Abatacept is currently approved for use in people with rheumatoid arthritis who have had an inadequate response to one or more DMARDs. It is useful in delaying the progression of structural damage and reducing symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

I think I may need to use some, not for me, but for a family member who's been suffering with pains due to working too hard, I think for a considerable length of time.
