How long have you been on humira for? I am the other way around, started with Remicade did for 1 year 4 months. I lost the effectness, and it caused remicade induced RA. I went crippled. Because remicade hows mouse dna, where as humira is fully human. it could take up to 3 months to 1 year to feel full effectness of the humira. Are you sure you don't want to wait it out a little longer? as there aren't allot of different anti-TFN blockers so you really have to feel this isn't working and your willing to go on your last chance. there is I think only 3, humira,remicade,cizmiza(I think I spelled it correctly)
I wish you the best of luck, keep us posted!
I didn't hear of anyone have humira induced side effects like remicade. you are the first I hear of. I am so sorry to hear that. I am taking Imuran with Humira.Do you take any other med like imuran to avoid antibodies? in a week of this all my RA pains and criplness has gone I can walk again, and live a normal life (RA wise) my crohn's is off the wall, was in the hospital sunday and Monday (my bday) because of the CD so I am still awaiting for humira to start working for my CD.
I was just talking to my fiance and parents about thinking of stoping all these new meds (remicade, humira) and go back to my normal meds like before. But I was in the hospital weekly before remicade. But atleast I wouldn't have to worry about remi/humira induced ra and lumpus. I agree with you. But scarry at the same time, I have high hopes humira will work with only a little doubt
I wish all of us the best of luck with these meds.
