Humira

Hi there.

I have finally attained my RX for Humira. What a gong show. Took 6 weeks so far. Now I am waiting on a Humira nurse to help me or "watch" me when I do my injections. Has anyone done their own first injections without supervision? I have the Humira pen and have no aversion to needles. Just worried about side effects etc, as my first dose is 4 pens.

Any info or advice would be more than appreciated!

Thanks,
Char

Re: Humira

Char,
Have you started taking your injections? I'm new to the forum otherwise I would have given you my experience with Humira. The only known side effect I had from Humira was a lack of energy the following day. I was also diagnosed with Thrombocytopenia (low blood platelets) but the doctor can't confirm if this was caused by the injections.
