It took nearly a month for me to notice the positive results, and then I saw definite improvements, but still could not get off the prednisone without flaring up a bit. My dosage was moved up to weekly shots (which I am currently fighting with insurance about), and the improvement is dramatic. I feel like I am finally on my way to remission.
Interestingly, Remicade worked faster for me, but then I had reactions to it and had to discontinue. I am very happy with the weekly Humira, though.
Hope it works for you!
