Wondered if any body taking Humira is taking 40MG weekly rather than every other week. If so how much has weekly helped as opposed to every other week?

I have done it once, to starve off a flare that was dying to come through. It did help me tremendously, but I returned to every other week after that one.

My GI did not hesitate at all to have me do it a week apart.

My 11 yr old son is in the current pediatric clinical trial of Humira. I am aware of some kids with CD who have been increased to weekly dosing when every other week dosing has failed to control their severe disease. The level of med used varies according to the child's weight but some are in the adult category and are taking 40 mg weekly.

The clinical trial protocol we are under calls for increasing to weekly dosing if there is a failure to respond or if there is a flare. My son is randomized to either 20 mg or 40 mg dosing so if he were to be increased to weekly then he might be at 40 mg weekly.
Follow your dreams.
