Hi,
It has been 3 and a half months now since I started on Humira shots every other week. At my last appt with my Dermatologist I was wanting to switch to Enbrel, but he wanted me to give it another month. I am finally seeing results of drying, less itching and some fading of the psoriaisis. tongue My D said it had worked much faster for some people. I guess my body is just stubborn. Hopefully this will continue because it does help the arthritis part of the PA really well.  I just wanted to let you all know  that I am doing better.
 
Thanks for your support.
 
Be Well,
 
Judy

yea Judy! yes...it can take months for it to take effect. and look for even further advances to your benefit as the year goes on. and don't be surprised if your dose of Humira is bumped up to maybe every 10 days or every week as we grow "tolerant"....but that's far in advanced so don't worry! that was just my example of a personal dealing with it.
may this be a start of a beautiful year to come. the best to you!

Thanks Marius and Erin,
I appreciate the encouraging posts. I was gettting discouraged last month before I saw my doctor. He told me he would hate to stop it if it was about to work. I decided on another month, and am glad I did. It sounds like it has worked for you Erin. I"m glad they have these drugs now, even with their side effects, they give us freedom from a lot of suffering.

Thanks to everyone for your good wishes. :-)

Be Well,

Judy
