The worst-case scenario is your immune system might learn how to develop Humira-antibodies while you are off of Humira. So, when you attempt to restart Humira later, it may either not work at all, or at least be a lot less effective than it was initially. That's why doctors recommend we do not stop a biologic.
Are you on the Humira copay assistance savings card? I have an equivalent one for my remicade, and that card paid directly for my annual $3,000 deductible, which was truly wonderful. It also took care of the $150 I was responsible for when I got my infusion. Those cards eat up copays and deductibles. /www.humira.com/humira-complete/cost-and-copay
