Humira is not FDA approved yet, so I think you either need to get it approved 'off label' through your ins. co. and they may want to you try 6mp and remi before they would approve it, not all ins. co's will approve off label anyway, so check first and if not you would need to get on a study.
I think there are a few ppl here on Humira, it is FDA approved for Chron's so if you want to know about
side effects and stuff that board might be helpful too.
best of luck!
Beth, 32 ~ hoping to taper pred successfully, wish me luck!
