I just started Humira last month. I've had my two loading doses and my first regular dose, so I'm five weeks into it now. I had been diagnosed with UC 14 yrs ago, pretty mild until 2006 when it went sideways and I was in the hospital for a month. I've not been great since. I started Remicade in the summer but broke through after a few weeks, so was back in hospital in October for a couple weeks. When I got in I went through the usual multitude of tests and then some and a rectovaginal fistula was discovered. Boom - diagnosis changed to Crohn's just as we'd been talking about large colon removal and a pouch. So now I'm trying Humira. I am feeling somewhat better but not symptom-free yet, so have stayed on 20mg prednisone and salofalk suppositories. It's all fun and games, you know?
I'd be interested in other Humira stories - misery loves company and all :)

Can't answer any of your Humira questions as I have not used that med before. But wanted to welcome you to Healingwell and bump up your post so others might have a chance to see and respond.

Good luck,

Thanks for the welcome, Nanners! I've spent too long without getting involved with people with like situations you know? It's a miserable journey we are all on, but hopefully we can keep smiling...

I'm on Humira. Have been for the last 6 months. At first it didn't do what I had hoped it would, but I think it takes a bit longer than other meds to "kick in". I hope it's working it's magic. I'm also 9 months pregnant and it could easily be the pregnancy that's keeping me stable. I guess we're going to find out after I deliver next week. :) I hope you find that the Humira is helping you. Lots of us here are on Humira. I'm sure some more will post soon! WELCOME!!!
