I'm in the same situation now. I have been on humira for almost 2 years, (this oct would have been 2 yr). It started to lose effectiveness for me. It took 6 months for it to work .
I never have been on Remicade, went to humira first.
So, next thurs Aug 6th will be my 1st Remicade infusion. I'm anemic again and start up on iron IV tomorrow.
I would say give humira up to 1 year to work before you give up. I was on weekly humira which was much better than bi-weekly. You can ask your DR. to try weekly 1st then if that fails go to Remicade.
I have been off Humira for 2 months.
My DR also just added Entocort.
