I've been on Humira about
4 months now and the only noticable side effects I've had are period itching all over body but when I take Benadryl it goes away quickly...plus I run a low grade fever a lot since I started Humira, not sure if that's normal for everyone but it can't be a coincidence cuz that's never been a problem for me before. On any give day (and I can tell when it comes on) my temp will run about
100, makes me very tired when that happens, guess my body is using all it's strength to fight the fever.
Anyway, those minimal side effects will not deter me from continuing with the Humira, it took about
2 weeks for me to feel better but it has made a world of difference for me...love it!
