hello.  I have been dealing with a UC/Crohn's flare up for almost 8 months so my Rheumatologist decided to give me HUMIRA for the first time.  However, he only started me with 2 shots (not the normal 4) for Crohn's.  He said that since I was still weening off of Prednisone (10mg) and taking Colazal, he didn't think I would need the 4 shots on the first visit.  This sound weird to anyone?  Also, wondering if anyone has experienced any major "side effects" from HUMIRA in the first few months of treatment.  thanks for the help!

Ya that sounds weird. I would push for the standard 4 shots. Good luck!
