Just looking for some wisdom from this forum. I've been on Humira since September 2017, and it's been the only thing that has worked for me. Due to a job change and thus an insurance change, I missed almost a month of doses (I take Humira weekly). I didn't have any issues being off of it (which was extremely surprising to me since my ulcerative colitis is usually severe) until a few days before I finally received my medication when I started experiencing mild flare symptoms. I've been back on Humira for 2 weeks, but still experiencing flare symptoms and they are getting worse, not better. Do I wait and see if I get back to remission? Is it possible it will just take a while because I was off it for so long? Or did I develop antibodies and completely screw up my chances of using Humira again? That's what scares me the most. I should probably just get the blood test and find out, but looking for any insights.
