Anybody tried tocilizumab for RA? Was it effective?

Hi Docs and friends, I am 24 yr male and diagnosed with early RA. I have pain and swelling in multiple joints such as hands, fingers and knees etc. I have used NSAID but it didn't work well. So my doctor suggested that I take an injection of Tocilizumab once a month. I just tryna get more info on this, if anybody has ever used this for their RA, how was it? How quickly did it get effective? Any side effects?
