My doctor recently changed my Humira from every other week to every week. In doing so, my insurance company will only approve this if I am taken off of MTX. Is anyone else prescribed Humira every week instead of every other week? If so, should I expect an increase in side effects or illnesses?
Also, I will be going on a business trip the first week of June. I have never traveled with Humira before. I have the travel pack with the ice insert and I am not concerned with it melting. The biggest concern I have is if the the airlines will give me any trouble with carrying on an injectible. I would assume not since diabetics travel too and have to keep their meds on them, but since this is my first time I am hoping to hear other people's experiences.
Thank you. I dont know how I would have made it this far without the support of this community. (long time reader to know Im not alone-fairly new member)
