Does Humira make it hard for you to sleep?
I took my first Humira exactly one week ago. I am so tired I am weepy and having difficulty concentrating. I take a muscle relaxer at night and still have problems sleeping. I just lie awake a lot of the night no matter how tired I am when I go to bed. This is the only new med. I also stopped taking Imuran and am weaning off pentasa and entocort. So I am not sure which of those things are causing it.
I have an appointment with a psychiatrist on July 17th to get a refill on my effexor meds and plan to ask him about sleeping pills. I had them before, they worked great to get me back into a rhythm of sleeping, and then I was ok for a while. I am usually tired with my CD but this is beyond tired. I can barely think or do anything.
I can already feel the Humira working and want to keep taking it. I am hoping the first higher dose was the reason for the sleeplessness and might go away with the lower dose.
Diagnosed w/ Crohn’s Disease March 2007 On 150mg Azathioprine (generic Imuran), Pentasa, & Entocort Switching to Humira June 2008 will wean off Pentasa and Entocort

thanks both of you. Zanne I also have the opposite reaction I did not even think that Humira might make others sleepy. I stay awake with cold pills alos. Nyquil barely makes me sleepy at all.
Stef, good luck with the baby, I bet you are tired.
