While Remicade worked faster for me (in terms of noticing results), I felt better for longer with Humira. When I was on weekly Humira (vs. biweekly), I had a sweet couple of months where I felt better than I had since diagnosis. When the Humira stopped working for me, there was no allergic response as I had with Remicade, I just started to feel lousy when trying to wean off the Prednisone. I was on Humira for a total of 8 months.
