So, I feel like I got hit by a truck today. I feel very tired and a little achy... almost like I'm coming down with something, but I'm not. Has anyone else experienced this after the first few doses of Humira? Tell me it goes away.....

The loading doses are definately the worse!! I have had the same feeling before,it does go away,the most annoying thing that I get is headaches and nasal stuffiness,my GI just called me in Nasonex yesterday. Good luck :-)

i felt nausea and very very tired. Got a funny taste in my mouth. But seriously got my 2nd mat. dose and it has went away. I have been fine. I was thinking maybe the first 4 and the 2 loading dosage was just a lot of medicine i m not sure. But with mat. shot i feel pretty good. Wont know for sure if it is working until i come off steriod.

I had the same thing after both of the loading doses after the 2nd loading dose I actually slept until 4pm the following day and I probably fell asleep about midnight. That was the reason I did the shot on Friday...worrying I wouldnt feel well for work...that isnt an issue now though. I hope you feel better soon

I don't know if it was in my head or not, but I do feel much better today. I guess it was just the strong doses that set me back for a few days. The nurse said that I would be tired afterwards.
