Hi, it's so nice to see someone post out of concern for another, so good for you!!

I reacted to Remicade and could no longer take it. My doc told me about Humira, and I have to admit, I put
it off for so long, as the fear of another reaction frightened me. But I started Humira some months ago, and
everything went very smoothly.

I think your girlfriend might do well on it. Good luck to both of you!!

Hello answer3,

Yikes! I definitely wouldn't put up with that type of reaction. What has her GI said about it? Hasn't he/she offered her any other options? If humira was suggested, I would jump on it.

Hope everything works out well for your friend.
