Happy Friday All,

I have a question for everyone. Does anyone know if there is a time limit one should be taking Humira? I have been injecting myself since 2011 for Psoriasis and wonder if it is healthy to be taking it for so long. It does work but has strong warning labels. Also, has anyone experienced with drawl symptoms in between shots? I take a 40mg shot every two weeks and by the time the next shot is due, I am feeling sickly.

Hi Nick, I have crohns disease & was on Humira for several years & had to stop. I did not have any withdrawal symptoms & have not heard of anyone doing this either. What I do suspect will happen, is your psoriasis will come back with vengeance. This is how it tends to happen once we go off these meds & do not have something else to take over. Do you have a back up plan?

Granted, the meds have strong warning labels, but these are potential side effects. It does not mean that every person will have side effects. They are required by law to list any potential side effect while the meds are in the trial phase. I am not aware of any time limit allowed on Humira, perhaps you can discuss this with your dr.

Take care.
