2nd Month of Humira

Posted , 6 users are following.

Sorry for the late reply. I have been super busy with work and school starting back! (Future Nurse Here (smile It has been about 2 months since I started Humira. I am now doing my injections once a week, every Tuesday. I don't notice any significant improvements yet. However, I am experiencing some side effects. I am having mild body aches, dark urine, fatigue, stuffy nose and emotional. I am going to give it another couple of months. If I do not see any improvements I am going to discontinue Humira. The risk is not worth the reward if I cant see any improvements. I will try to keep everyone updated as I go. Until then, stay awesome! <3

    Hi , really good to hear from you , 

    wow a nurse good for you smile 

    im sorry to hear your getting so many side effects and no improvement that's a shame and very disappointing. I've read it does take a few months to start working though. What's your nurse say about it all are they supporting you?.

    Glad to hear from you. I have been on humira for 10 months now. After 2 months I started to think the effects were waining but that soon passed. Give it a bit and see what happens. It's helped me as far as controlling inflammation and making me mobile again.

    Are you on anything else along with Humira? I was on a combination of antibiotics for awhile and one of those would turn my urine a dark orange. Just wondering. Hope all goes well for you!

    Stay strong!

    Hello,

    I've been on Humira for 6 months discontinued it back in June. Started a new treatment called Infliximab and it has worked wonders for me. Gave me complete mobility (extremely severe case). I partner that up with a healthy diet and only see one mild flare up a month. Whenever you go visit your dermatologist ask about infiximab injections. Won't regret it!
