Hi. Welcome to Healing Well. I took Humira for a couple of months back in January. It's one of those drugs that's useful for multiple problems; I was taking it for my joints, but a great side effect was that it calmed down my GI system too (I have possible IBD). In fact, it did more for my GI symptoms than my joints. I only ended up taking it for 2 months and then I was switched to enbrel. Humira messed with my blood counts a bit; probably wasn't an insurmountable problem and I could have stayed on it. But because it wasn't doing anything for my joints at the time, my rheumy switched me to enbrel. I've had no problems with enbrel so far, but it did take quite a bit of time (8 months) to full kick in for my joints. Some people have a dramatic and immediate effects from these drugs, though. You might be one of them. I was simply slow to respond.
Best of luck to you!
