Has anyone else out there experienced anxiety, insomnia, and panic attacks from humira and or remicade? I've had to stop both medications because of it. I was just wondering if anyone else had this reaction to any biologic but not another one? I'm debating about giving up on trying another biologic because I'm terrified of getting the same reaction. It would be awesome to know others had the same reaction on one biologic but found one that didn't cause those problems and that actually worked. Thanks!

I was on Humira for 6 years. Only experienced the anxieties once in a while, but rarely.

I've been on remicade since 2011, I don't remember having any extra anxiety or anything but during the loading doses it was a difficult emotional time, I was still sick, praying it would work and fighting with my insurance company so I might not have attributed it to that.
UC Pancolitis: dx'd 2000; Remicade since 4/25/11, every 8 weeks. Kidney Disease (Minimal Change Disease): dx'd 2007 caused by 5ASA's (thank you sulfsalazine, lialda and asacol). Current meds: Remicade & prenatal vitamin. I feel better than I have in years being off the ton of medication I was on before.
