I'm already a day late on my Humira (was too busy to take it yesterday and deal with the fatigue). I've been getting over a bad cold I had earlier in the week. I'm still a bit stuffed up, but so is everyone around here in the Midwest. The docs always warn to not take Humira with any sign of infection...but I guess my question is, how do you gauge if you're not ready to take it? And then how long do you wait?

Thanks!

I have never skipped a dose; my GI said to not take it if I was running a consistent fever and to call him instead and we may end up doing it anyways. Hasn't happened yet, as I've haven't run fever during a planned dose.

That said - it doesn't hurt to wait until tomorrow morning and call your GI before taking it if you are unsure.

Thanks Aimee! Yeah, I feel totally fine....just a little tired since it's late here, but I don't want to put this off another day. I've just never been clear on the definition, so this helps!
