I had my loading dose(160mg) of Idacio ( a biosimilar medicine to Humira given in Ireland ) 30th June, then an 80mg dose on 14th July and I'm due my regular 40mg dose on Tuesday.
Didn't think I was seeing a major difference but in the last few days I have notice little or no blood and 2 days ago I didn't have to go straight to the bathroom once I woke up, it was about and hour and a half before I needed to go.
Fast forward to this morning and I woke at 3am with what I thought was gas but just to be safe I went to the toilet and sure enough it was liquid and blood, getting back into bed I felt like I might be sick but fell back asleep. Woke at my normal time and had a semi solid BM with some blood. So far today I had 6 BMs, the last few mostly just gas and blood. 6 BMs is alot for me, at worse I'm usually 4-5 and best 1-2. My stomach is still sick, I've been dry retching all day, I feel hot and have the shakes and back ache, 24 hrs ago I felt completely fine and thought I was making progress.
I'm now wondering if the injections are making any difference. Has anyone gone backwards while taking this medication and still had success?
Confused and disappointed.
