Hi Guys, Wanted to let you know I called Humira this morning.  They transferred me to a representative.  I explained my mistake on my first injection and how it squirted into the air.  They are sending me a replacement for my next dose to my Doctors, no problem at all!  I'm so happy, I know it's quite expensive and I was really worried about that missing dose.  So if anyone screws up as much as I did, theres a solution! 
 
P.S. today was better than yesterday!  That's all I can ask for.

I felt sooo much better on Remi last year -- before I became allergic. I was hoping Humira would give me similar relief, but I'm allergic to it too. Tomorrow I see my GI Dr and find out the next plan (and ask him about hookworms, but that is another post).

Humira appears to work well for many folks on this forum. I hope it works very well for you too!

I called my insurance and was very firm about them sending it to you asap. I explained that it was a covered benefit under my RX plan of $30 a month and I had just left the hospital and needed to start asap. Guess what, it was delivered the next day. So no, no problems. However, my husband is changing jobs and so will the insurance change so we will see. But it's cheaper than remi!
