I’ve been on Humira since the fall of 2016. It’s worked great for me.
It took eight full weeks for it to start to work, but then at the beginning of that week...it was like someone flipped a switch and I went into remission.
Occasionally I still have mild flares that can last 2 or 3 days. But it’s my fault when they occur. It happens with Poor eating choices.
There is only one complaint I have had with Humira. I can’t stand the pain of the injections. 10 seconds of hell for me. And that’s even with applying a numbing cream one hour before injection...and leaving the pen out for an hour before go time...
Has always felt like 10 seconds of someone putting a blow torch on the fatty part of my upper thigh.
Well...I am VERY happy to report...I used the “new” Humira with the smaller needle this past Monday ...and I could hardly even feel it during the injection. I actually wondered whether or not I did it right....it was THAT painless.
Anyway...so thankful for the new Humira pen.
