When I first started on Humira my GI had me start when I would normally go in for my infusion. I was getting Remicade every 5 weeks and was on it for about a year and a half. The only reaction I had to the Remicade was breaking out in hives for a couple of days after which cleared up with Benadryl. I switched to Humira because of my occupation. I'm in the Army, am a single mom, and am enrolled in college full time. I just didn't like my life having to revolve around my treatments and the Humira gave me my freedom back.
