I've noticed a pattern whenever I start a new med or raise the dosage of an existing one. For about the first week or two my symptoms go haywire and I feel worse than usual. It happened every time I raised Imuran by 25mg, when I started Entocort, and now that I started Humira. Then by the second week everything seems to return to normal.

Anyone else get this?

Hi Kenny,

I find that every time I incorporate anything new, or up any dosage of supplements the same thing happens to me. I figure it's just my body making the adjustment to something new and/or new potencies....meds, vitamins, etc.

I can't hardly handle any new drugs. I couldn't handle Remicade either. All the effects I am dealing with from the drugs concerns me! Any slight change and I feel like crap!
