Has Anyone Opted Not To Try A Biologic. My Doc Wants Me To Try Humera. The Patient Reviews Are Scary. Dont Know Is I Should Do It

I have been taking Humira since last fall. It takes time for the drug to work, but I couldn't be happier-- very good results. Way less fatigue, way less pain. My husband has noticed how much more energy I have. And my rheumy said at the next visit we can discuss tapering down the Methotrexate and Plaquenil. There is no sting on injection at all (citrate-free Humira).

Thank you all for your responses so appreciated. I just found out I have thyroid modules. From what the doc said there are several and some r quite large. I’m waiting for an appointment to get a biopsy. This has put the humera on hold. Anyone experience thyroid issues? Not sure now if I will /do want to take it knowing I have this and the cancer risk of the drug. A lot of decisions.

It is like a wonder drug! So much relief. Don't let the paperwork scare you. If it's not for you it is easy to stop. It was so good to be able to move around and not hurt so bad.

I've been on it for about a year. The first couple of weeks i had nausea & diarrea but it finally stopped. I feel fine now. It's working pretty good.
