Oh gosh, I have to go for my first Humira shots tomorrow morning and I have a client meeting in the afternoon! Should I reschedule it? I am glad I read this first!
Is there anything I can take beforehand? When I was taking the remicaide I was obviously there for a while and they monitor you and occasionally I would all of a sudden break out in hives and they would give me a shot of benedryl in my IV. With the Humira do you get the shots and you're on your way?
It is very unusual to get reactions to Humira.
I have had 10 shots now and I feel fine after them, it stings a little when I am injecting but after that I am good to go ;)
