I have a question for any Canadian's on Humira. Reasoning is I had my GI appointment today and I mentioned about going on Weekly shots of Humira as I am biweekly now. He doesnt think it may be a good idea, one because Humira only recommends on the Canadian version pamplet not recommeded less than Bi weekly. I am also his ONLY patient on this drug because everyone else is on Remicade and doing very well and doses can be altered. I was on Remicade by severely allergic to it. I will have been on Humira 3 months on Friday June 28th. I have heard Humira says it takes up to 3 months and had a couple of people on this site or another, that it can take up to 4 months. I also started Prednisone last Sat to calm down my flaring 40mg. If I give this Humira up, all that is left is surgery and he says I am not in that bad of shape to have it (like I want surgery anyways..) Now I am waiting for the Progress team via Humira to call my doctor to see if it is ok for weekly shots. Anyone out there on weekly and how long? Also what part of Canada you are in, thanks alot, I really need this info!
