My gastroenterologist started me on self-administered Humira pen shots on Feb. 13. My second round of shots was last Wednesday, Feb. 27. I am feeling a LOT better...from 10+ bms w/ blood to 5-7 w/ no blood, formed stools, etc...of which 3 of the 5-7 BMS are rapid fire in morning. I'm wondering if anyone has been on Humira for UC or Crohns (pancolitis, 37 year UC history). This flare has been a tough one. Flaring since Oct. 07. Does this medicine take about 4 weeks for full effect, or even longer? Anyone's feedback regarding Humira would be greatly appreciated. Currently on Canasa suppositories, Imuran 200 mg./day, Prednisone 30 mg./day, and the Humira shots.
