How Long Did It Take For Humira To Make A Difference For You And How Much Of A Difference?

How Long Did It Take For Humira To Make A Difference For You And How Much Of A Difference?

I have had two injections so far and no change at all. In fact, went into a flare and now on Medrol. If Humira works for you, how long did it take and how much did it help?

Good luck on the humira. It was scary for me reading all the side effects but its the only drug so far that has kept me from the ER. I still get achy but nothing like the pain I was experencing before the injections.

The same thing happened to me on Humira. I recieved a Medrol shot Thursday. I asked the doctor to switch me back to Enbrel.

I’ve been on Humaira and Methotrexate for about 2 years and it has been ok. It has kept my pain in check (about the same) most of the time. I inject bi-weekly.

Hey everybody, you have given me a lot of hope. I don't expect to be having it all gone but really what I want is to no longer be on Medrol. I am also on Arave and Plaquenil (generics of both but don't want to spell those names). I don't think I ever want to be off Plaquenil- studies have shown that it protects the kidneys and heart in lupus, which I also have.

I have been on Humeria at least 8 years .... I wOuld say it took a number of injections before I had enough built up in my system to make a difference. My daughter was diagnosed about 3 years ago ... and she reacted about the same. Hang in there! Nothing is going to make it ALL go away .... but this drug makes most days tolerable. And helps with the extreme fatigue I can always tell when a dose is coming due, for should I say, my hubby can always tell :)
