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.

Hi and Welcome! We don't have many members on the UC forum that use Humira. You may want to post on the Chrons board to get more responses. I am glad it is working for you!!! Keep us posted.
