Has anyone had an allergic reaction to Humira?
I had one shot and broke out in hives within and hour.
Don't know what would have happened if I got all 4.
Now I'm seeing a new doctor who wants me to start the shots.

I am allergic to Humira. I started on Remicade and became allergic after 5 infusions. My wise GI gave me one pen of Humira to be safe. Good thing -- whole body hives! If you told your new doctor you got hives and he still wants you to take Humira -- RUN!
Diagnosed with Crohn's in early 2007.  Several peri-rectal abscesses and two fistulae with setons.  Allergic to Remicade and Humira.  Currently on 6MP, and vitamins D and B-12.

He said he's start with 2 shots and see what happens. Maybe I'll go for 1.

Fall Colors - how long have you been on 6MP? I tried it and after 3 weeks I ended up hospitalized with pancreatitis caused by the 6MP.
