I am currently on Humira and fear it's not working. I have constant itching and hives and my crohn's is in full flare. Anyone know if there's something else looming on the horizon?

Have you checked out info on Cimzia? That might be the next step or even Methotrexate.

Good luck

Nanners, No I haven't. I am going to make an appointment to discuss it this week. Thanks for the info. Methotrexate made me very ill, but Cimzia is new to me.
