My GI is considering putting me on humira.  I am worried about the effects from my immune system being suppressed.  How has it gone for people out there?  Do you get sick often?
Thanks! Eryn

I've been on Humira for about 6-7 months and I haven't had any issues. Course I came off Remicade (on for 2.5 years, also an immune supressant) and never got sick and I am also taking Imuran (also immune supressant).

I really haven't been sick anymore than normal.

(Humira has been great for me!)
