I have been on Humira for three+ years. I take naproxen and cymbalta for pain every morning. I have tramadol if I need it, but I don't need it often. I was on Prednisone for about five years but I am weaned off of that now. I use Arnica gel topically for joint and muscle aches and pains. I also have a muscle relaxer I can take but it makes me sleepy so I don't take it often. Hope this info helps. ❤️❤️❤️

@A myRAteam Member. I am still using Humira and it still works for me. I still have flare ups if I overdo it and I still ache most of the time. But I am alive and able to get out and about if I take it easy. I take naproxen and cymbalta for pain each morning too. Sometimes I sleep well, other nights I wake up every time I turn over. In the winter I have a heated mattress pad I use and it helps me to relax and get to sleep. Hope this helps you.

I take a once weekly injection of humira, but also have thyroid issues. I started losing a lot of hair. I went to the dr and with my med my thyroid was normal. But found out a few weeks later that biotin can cause abnormal thyroid results. But my pcp prescribed me cimitdene and I have noticed a huge improvement. It's an acid reflux/antihistamine that also lowers your testosterone levels.

Just another note. If anyone is having problems with the needle and injections, you could think about using the pen. They are so much easier to use. I was sent them by mistake from the Mail Pharmacy... hmmm - that's another discussion... But I have used them ever since. The pen is so much easier.

I've been on Humira since 2003. It's 2018! I'm very lucky I guess. It seems to have been made for me. I noticed a gradual good reaction in about 1 week. I believe it has continued to improve over the years. Just started taking CBD oil along with it and improved more.
