I just wanted to see if anyone else with moderate to severe Crohn's Disease is on Humira. And on pen or shot? I am just curious as to how others are doing on Humira, etc. Would love to hear from others about it.

Thanks!

Ive been on HUMIRA for about a month and so far it is great!!!! Moderate Crohn's, without this I dont know how I'd get from day to day. Oh I use the pens, they sting a bit but worth it!!!

I just began syringes two days ago and the shots were a breeze, only a tiny sting and I did it myself. no change yet, but hoping something happens soon.
48 y/o woman.  Diagnosed 4/06 after colonscopy, SBFT, CT-scan all showed crohns. 3 months later, after pred and remicade, all tests showed no crohns. In December had adhesions cut through a laparoscopy. Now just taking Glycolax, metamucil, and preparing to begin Humira.

Wow- that is great to hear! I have been on Humira for about 8 months now and after having severe Crohn's for almost 6 years now it has helped about 70%. It is amazing. I can live a semi-normal life now. I was just wondering how everyone else was doing. At first I was on the syringe but now I am on the pen and it kills when I do it. And I am trying to figure out why it is hurting me so bad. Weird. It seems as though everyone else is tolerating it pretty well.
