I have been getting Humira injections every 2 weeks for the past 3 months. Not much has changed in my symptoms. When I told my doctor this, he told me to include methotrexate once a week to see if it helps. The symptoms I'm having are the usual UC symptoms like frequent bm (around 6 a day), bleeding, inconsistency, and urgency sometimes.
I was on remicade before but when I was on remicade, I was also on prednisone twice. During my time on remicade, I wasn't able to fully gauge my progress because of the concurrent prednisone use. When I got the test done to see if my remicade blood levels were okay, it showed antibodies thus ending my remicade treatment.
I have yet to start on methotrexate since the pharmacy had to order in a strength of folic acid they didn't have at the time I filled my prescription. I am wondering if anyone has experience with being on both Humira and methotrexate. Even if you only had a bad time with the combination of drugs, I'd like to know. This is my last option before Vedolizumab.
