It was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. But wow do I feel out of it today. Any suggestions? Does this get easier? Thank you for any input

I've been on it for 6 weeks now and I always feel wiped out the next day. I do mine on Friday night so I can take it easy on Saturday.
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 13. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. 2 fistula's, perianal and perivaginal.

Humira, probiotic, a multivitamin, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and fish oil. I also take Tramadol 50 mg and Klonopin (for anxiety) as needed.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!

I was on Humira for 9 months. I found the first few months I was very tired and worn out the next day so I did the same as grayeyed and always did mine Friday night. After being on it 4 or 5 months it got better and by my last couple months I wasn't tired anymore afterwards, but they have also determined it stopped working for me and I am now in a flare. I kind of felt that when I was wiped the next day it was working. Even though I was tired the next day it did really help me and I was only tired for about a day.
Diagnosed with Crohn's in 1998, father has UC we were diagnosed at the same age.

Currently on Prednisone, Sulfasalzine, Probiotic, Flax Oil, Calcium, Magnesium, D3. Just stopped Humira in May after 9 months.

No surgeries so far.

Glad it went well Barbz! I will start on my initial doses of Humira this week, so the tips have been great. Fridays were the days I received my Remicade treatments, so i will continue with Friday with Humira.

Rest up and hope the fatigue goes away!
