Hey there Oregonian, sorry for my tardiness in replying.. Ok, I looked up Humira (I'm on Enbrel) and this is what I found:
What are the possible side effects of Humira?
Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Serious and sometimes fatal infections may occur during treatment with Humira. Contact your doctor right away if you have signs of infection such as:
fever, chills, sore throat, flu symptoms, weight loss;
joint pain or swelling with fever, swollen glands, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, unusual thoughts or behavior, and/or seizure (convulsions);
patchy skin color, red spots, or a butterfly-shaped skin rash over your cheeks and nose (worsens in sunlight);
chest pain, ongoing cough, coughing up blood; or
easy bruising or bleeding, pale skin, unusual weakness
So it looks like the seizures can be a side effect of the medicine.. Did her rheumy say why he doesn't think it's the Humira causing them? I know my rheumy has told me a couple times that the side effects I have from Enbrel don't have anything to do with the med.. but I didn't have it before I started taking it, and if I go off it for a period of time, the side effects go away.. Is there anyway she can get a 2nd opinion? When is her appt with the neurologist?
Please let us know how you and your daughter are doing.. Oh, and I got the information above, from this website: http://www.drugs.com/humira.html
