It all depends on the severity of your symptoms at the time when you started the Humira. My GI said it may take me 2 or 3 months to get the full effects from it since my CD is severe at the moment. I started back in September. I have a fistula which it is helping but not healing looks like i need more then just his med or other traditional methods to make that better. I have noticed tho since on the HUmira my joint problems are less and most times non existant which is initially why I was going on it and while it was waiting for authorixation the fistula decided to join in on the party from he** I have been having this year.
It all varies I did notice less drainage from the fistula a few days after the first loading dose of 4 shots but I am still flaring terribly not only the fistula but the abdominal pain is fierce. I hope that after my surgery since my body had humira in it at a steady rate now that it will keep those symptoms away. I think my fistula was brewing since about JUly that was when the pain began I think once the affected area is removed that the humira may put me into remission since I have seen the fistula size get smaller and drainage become less...just wish it would heal the darn thing rather than me needing a 4th surgery but if thats what I need to get better then bring it on
GL with Hunira it may take a while to kick in depending on the severity but you should feel relief soon
