I'm due for my next 2 loading doses tommorrow, the problem or issue that I have is that I have had a headache all day long and i can't seem to get rid of it. I have only taken 2 tylenol as I'm not a big pill pusher and i try to just let the headache work thru my system. If I wake up tommorrow  and I still have a headache can or should I still take my Humira?
FYI: I don't usually get headaches and I believe this is the 2 headache in my life to last all day.
Thanks and I appreciate the answers to a silly question.

Hmm, I wouldn't think twice in doing it myself. As long as you don't have fever or signs of infection I don't see why you shouldn't. You can always call the GI office just to make sure if you're paranoid.

The only time TNF's shouldnt be taken is if signs of infection like above stated. Green snot or mucous, Fever, chills or runny nose with symptoms.
