If You're On Humira, Are You A Part Of Their Nurse Ambassador Program?

If You're On Humira, Are You A Part Of Their Nurse Ambassador Program?

I recently tried Humira injections & was very surprised & pleased with their Nurse Ambassador Program. There is no cost for this service and it is an amazing resource!

When you sign up for the program they will find a nurse ambassador in your area to come to your home show you how to give yourself an injection, give you a sharps container, and a packet of info that includes an injection tracker to mark down your injection sites. Humira is the ONLY biologic I've used that offers this level of… read more

Hi Lisa:

Yesterday I went to Google as you had wrote and pulled up the website. I completed what was required and they said they would get back to me within 48 hours.

When you mentioned pulling out the pen too early I did that once also but fortunately it did not go on
my shirt. instead it was over my hand.
Another time I was in too much of a hurry and the needle got injected in one of my fingers (OWWW).

I will see what they say and it may turn out that the times I thought I was doing it correctly they may notice something for me to correct.

Thank you again for bringing this to our attention.

@A myRAteam Member I was a medical assistant, phlebotomist, and went to paramedic school. It's totally different when giving yourself injections. I hope you will get the extra care you need. It definitely helped me and yes the brain fog is a huge issue!

@A myRAteam Member That's so great! I just started my MTX self injections and my Enbrel Pen injections this week. I was lucky that Kaiser was able to get me in with the nurse who taught me how to do both on myself. It is such a great thing to have. They also called the next day to see how I was doing. I think any program like you are describing is amazing for us!

@Dave- I've been on numerous biologics so I thought I didn't need the program but after I fumbled my first injection I called. I was used to doing self injections with a syringe but my doc ordered the pens, which I'd never used. I didn't hold the pen in long enough, pulled it out, & figure I squirted about $2,000 of medication on my shirt! Suddenly my shirt was my most valuable possession! My mom used to say when I was a kid I was Little Miss Know it All & its obvious I haven't changed. My nurse was sooo nice & followed up with me several times, which was refreshing. I hope you check it out & like the service.

I have been taking Humira for a little but it is still worth it to me to look into this program.
