I am sorry you're concerned about
flaring. Firstly, I think you should consider taking something for the depression if your doctor recommends it. Sometimes everything can hit at the same time, and it's easy to fall into a downward spiral, that's the last thing you need on top of the stress about
a flare up. Definitely speak to someone if you're feeling depressed. Regarding Humira, people's results are varied. Some people have quick results, some slower, but after 7 weeks, you would probably notice positive improvement. It doesn't mean you would be 100%, but you would likely be headed in the right direction if you are going to. It's possible you could add something more to the Humira to get it to work better, like 6mp or imuran. Do you have an appointment to see your GI? I would make one sooner than later. It's better to have options and not need them, than to wait and wish you had called. Are you on rectals?
