Humira

Humira

Next week, I have my first Humira injection at my rheumy's office. My appointment is a lunch time. Will I be able to go back to work or should I schedule the afternoon off?

Wish me luck with Humira!!

@A myRAteam Member I did my own injections at home and never had an issue other than the injection site was sore.

I did Enbrel for 4 months and Humira for 1 month at home and have had no problems. Enbrel never helped with the RA. I am hoping for better results from Humira.

You take the first one at the doctor's office to make sure you don't have a reaction to it. If you are not allergic, you should be able to go back to work. I did the first one at the office. I now do my own shots at home with no problem.

Humira has been a God send for me. I've had zero side effects. Although I'm not a fan of giving myself the injections, it's worth it!!
