Humira is not generally used in the treatment of Lupus, so I don't know that any of our members are on it and can help you with that.

Actually, there is a medication-induced form of Lupus that is caused by Humira -- it's my understanding that it clears up once you stop using the Humira, but I don't know how long that takes.

I'm not sure what you mean by, "My systems started..."?? Can you clarify or do you have a specific question we can try to answer for you?
