    Any thoughts on Humira???

    I was diagnosed with RA about 2 years ago. I was started on Methotrexate and Humira. I feel pretty good most of the time, but it seems like lately I have been having flares more often. Just wanted to know if anyone else is using Humira and still getting fairly severe flares??? ang

    Hi sorry to hear you are not to good. I have AS & D.I.S.H and am waiting for my blood levels to go up so I can get on a program with Embril a frend told me about Humira and I did a some research on the product. And I did not like all the side effects that MAY go with it so keep an eye on it and check for your self. Sorry I can not be of any help.

    I am on humira and have no complaints i also take prednisone only 5mg and now that I am on Glaucosimine as well I am like brand new and can soon stop the prednisone. I found that I had more flare ups when on methx than when I was on nothing. I didn't like methx and its side affects are far worse than the humira's. You have to try everything to find the right combination for you. Unfortunately the body gets used to things so you have to change sometimes.

    Good luck
    Kind regards

    i started on humira a few weeks ago, it hasn't had any effect so far but i understand that this can take sometime depending on the person. I've heard lots of good things about it. Hope it works for you.

    I have been on Humira since June of 2006. It has made a major difference in my life. I could barely walk, couldn't grasp anything, was always tired, no energy. is great!!!! It enabled me to get off all of my other meds (prednisone, methotrexate). I don't even take pain meds these days. I just hope it keeps on working and that I don't encounter any of the bad side effects. So far so good.

    I don't remember how long it took to take effect, but I know it wasn't long. Hang in there and give it some time and I hope it does as well for you.

    Re: Any thoughts on Humira???

    I've been on Humira for 5 years, with pretty good results. I still had bad flares, and occasionally had to use a wheel chair, up until about a year ago. Then I started working out regularly (in spite of the pain at first). Now I've reduced or stopped all my other meds, except for the Humira. I haven't had a flare in over a year, and I've started entering 5K's. My rheumatologist told me for years that exercise would help, but I never listened (who can exercise when you can barely move)! I'm so glad I finally did it, though! My life has improved greatly. Good luck to you!

    Hi im 22 and have had RA for 2years now. I am currently on a high dose of methotrexate after trying numerous disease modifying drugs!I have recently changed consultants and wondered how i go about asking to be put on anti tnf treatment? Is humira included as one of the anti tnf drugs? I would be grateful for any help.
