The first thing I noticed with humira was a bowel change about 2 wks after my loading dose. Changes were subtle at first, less D, then I had to take fewer lortabs. Was up to 2-3 a day and then what I thought was spinal cord back pain from B12 def., began to go away. Maybe it was arthritis related? I have had a return of some of my sx and some new hip pain, but I just cut out entocort. (I am listening to many folks here that c/o joint pains with weaning). I am still on pred 10 mg and as soon as I wean off that, will try to figure out what med I need besides humira for maintainance. I started humira in Oct 07.
