I had my first loading dose of Humira on Friday. I tend to get migraines anyway and I am on elavil to prevent them. I am cutting down on the elavil under my nuerologists care. I was on 100 mg and now am at 50 and supposed to cut down to 25 tonight. I am cutting down slowly him knowing that I want to start a family once my CD is better...I rather cut down as slow as possible rather than finding out I am pregnant and having to cut down rapidly.
I use to get headaches from remicade too, I was wondering for those who get headaches assoc with humira how many days after the humira do you finaly have no headache you can associate with it?
Also reading about elavil...it is bad for the heart in high doses and hear disease runs in my family plus it can cause constipation...that probably didnt help me out before my surgeries and my perforation. I just also worry that when I cut down I will spend most of my first day at work in the bathroom. Any tips or responses would be great
