It seems to me that Humira is the lesser of two evils. I have my start up doses in the fridge as of yesterday and will start on them next Friday.
My gastro wanted me on Remicade over a year ago, but the stuff I read about the possible side effects, the costs and number of folks who were rejecting it because of the rodent DNA kept me off of it....now I have chosen Humira as my next step....I feel there is less chance of rejection...less side effects to worry about and the cost is lower by more than 90%....
