I have been on Humira since the end of April and notice some benefit but it sure hasn't been the cure all  - I keep thinking maybe with more time everything will get better.  I was wondering what anyone who has been taking Humira for a long time has noticed as far as recovery time?  Did all your symptoms disappear quickly or did it take longer for some?  Thanks.  MB

I started my humira injection with imuran back in august and I notice full benifets back in Jan. I still have some pains now and then with some irregular bm at times but I feel about 90% better since I started the medication.

I was on it for 2.5 years. I noticed a change in my health almost immediately, about 2 weeks after my loading doses. It worked REALLY well for me. I started to not respond to it about 2 years in - we bumped the dosing and still no change. Finally just went off it.
I am not sure what the normal response time is... but I know that with it, and other biologicals, that you can build antibodies to it over time which is what happened with me.

folks, please note that this question was asked in 2007. I'm not sure how it got bumped to the top of the forum again, but am not sure that answers are needed by the original poster anymore :-).
