I've been on Humira for awhile and have never had a problem.  Having said that, my Imuran and I would suspect other forms of 6mp plays with my estrogen levels, in turn playing with the sex drive.  The reason I know this is because I've had to stop both drugs recently due to an upcoming non CD related surgery.  I had not had a period in 4 months and pretty much no sex drive since I was diagnosed a couple of years ago.  Within three days of stopping the Imuran I had my period and my breasts became a tender as they were in puberty which was a heck of a long time ago.  Hence, playtime has returned as well!  I had stopped the Humira 2 weeks prior to stopping the Imuran and noticed no difference in the way I felt with the exception of being more CD symptomatic.  Hope this answers your question.
