Wow six pens in 24 hours? That is alot.
They had me do 4 pens and then a week later do 2 pens and then 1 pen a week later and then 1 pen every two weeks....
I really hope it works well for you.

Hi TBW. I hope the Humira helps you. Today I get my second round of Cimzia shots. I had the first shots 2 weeks ago and then again in two weeks. It may be making my joint pain worse though. I'm giving it a try. Hope all else is well.
