Hi all,

I have been on Humira for a year now.  Everything is back to normal even after a miscarriage :(  I have gained weight and not my usual weight either.  But I was 2 weeks late getting my Humira injection due to the pharmacy and insurance.  So I was really without Humira for a month.  I was wondering if anyone was late with their injection as well.  I ended up after my injection, in bed for 2 days with no energy, no appetite and pale and I am never pale. Has anyone had this experience too?

I've been a few days late and noticed things starting to get worse when it happened, but once I started taking it again things began to get better.

I have been a couple days late a couple of times and got quite a scolding from the GI because of the risk of building up antibodies.  I'm sorry I'm ignorant here, but can anyone really explain that to me?
As for symptoms, I had none but then again I wasn't that late in getting my meds. 
I'm really sorry about your miscarriage.  Do you think it was in anyway related to the Humira?

Due to having my appendix out and then developing an infection, I was 6 weeks late one time. No problems. Several times I have gotten sick and delayed my injection. I did not suffer any problems with the delays.
