I have been on humira for 9 months and flared 3 weeks ago. To treat flare dr prescribed weekly dose of humira for 12 weeks. Took 3 rd week shot today and i feel a difference. Does anyone else take humira weekly?

I'm not on Humira now, but when I was I took it weekly, I ended up having a bad reaction to it though so I stopped taking it.

I take it once a week and it works good for me. I almost normal what ever that is. I still have small flairs, and other problems, but I don't have to worry to leave my house and now I get constipated

Well im in a foreign land it feels since being on bio's for two years after dealing with this diesase for 16 years. It has progressed into a new and different monster and i have to find out what combos work and which ones dont. Im talking to dr now about the imuran humira combo after i go back to two shots a month.

I have a friend who didn't have much response to the bi-weekly shots but noticed a difference when he went to weekly. He's now been doing weekly for 4 or 5 years (he was on one of the original trials for IBD). I think going to weekly is standard procedure now when the bi-weekly aren't enough. I'd encourage you to talk to your dr. about continuing the weekly shots after the 12 weeks if it helps you.

I'm starting soon and my doc said every other week. I will tell him about other patients using once per week.
I hope it works!!
