friday was my first starter dosage in Humira. And I've been back on Imuran for about 2 weeks. 
I wasn't feeling well at all when I took the Imuran during the day, light headed, nausea. So I decided to take it at night before bed time. It's seems like everytime I lose more and more sleep. Does anyone get this? Do you thinks it's because I'm taking it at night?
Also since humira I wake up with horrible flar ups. Is this a side effect of humira, or imuran?
Thanks for any insights

I wish I could wave my magic wand and make it all go away for you..... :)
I take 3 Imurans per day (usually with my dinner) and do Humira every other week. I haven't had any bad issues with either one. Maybe you just need some adjusting time. Hang in there - hopefully it will get better soon.

lol! thanks! I wish I had one of those!

since you say you have no sleep issues. I was probably thinking, Imurn and Humira is already helping with the RA pains I mean I can walk now!! so maybe I just not having pain induse sleeps anymore! I just have to get use to it, like you said.

Thank you so much for replying! :)

take care xoxo
