So I started Humira on Monday, loading dose was 4 jabs, 2 jabs in 2 weeks, then 1 jab every 2 weeks. 40mg each dose.
So far no side effects and im sure way too soon to notice improvements.
I'm still on the Azathioprine, max. mesalazine oral dose + Salofalk nightly 4g enemas + budesonide foam every 3 days. I will stop the budesonide foam after a month and stay on Salofalk for a bit longer and maybe go onto every 2 nights then 3 etc.
I'm still very concerned about the fact im on Azathioprine 200mg + Humira at the same time. That's reassuring what you mentioned though @Straydog, thanks.
The initial idea is for me to be on both meds until June, then remove the Azathioprine. Am I at much risk do you think during these 3-4 months on both or are the risks more associated with long-term use? If so, what exactly is considered long-term?
