Hi... Well, it's been three months and Humira is still not working for me. I'm wondering if I'm the only one out there. From all the posts I've read, it seems as though Humira works for everyone, and I'm getting frustrated to say the least.

I was on Humira for 6 months last year and it did me no good.  In fact, I had a major flare and a fistula develop while on it.  So I'm back on Remicade now.

LavenderBlue: Does Remicade work for you? My doc probably wants to switch me to that since Humira isn't working. But, to me, they seem very similar (except for the injection/infusion).
