Thanks everyone for you opinions and advice. I would definetely not drop my dose without talking to my gi. He happens to be one of the head guys that ran all the trials with Humira, so I'll check wait until my next appt. to see what he says. I had thought he told me when I started, that building anitibodies to Humira was much less likely than it is with Remicade (because of the mouse). But I will let you all know when I talk to him about it.
Nikki0294 a.k.a Christine,
I noticed a difference within the 1st 2 months. I was on 6MP which was just awful for me. I never got better taking that drug, and believe it actually made me worse, and always dead tired. I am a germ-a-phobe, but have 2 teenagers, and have not gotten sick once (knock on wood) while on Humira. I do have an RV fistula, that has gotten much better, but sad to say has never healed up with the Humira. Dr. thinks if I hadn't had a previous surgery on it, that it probably would have healed up. Oh well, after 13 years with this stupid disease, you learn to take every little bit of good, and try and ignore the bad! Talk to your gi about Humira, for some it really works wonders!
