I've using Humira for about 8 years to treat rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease.  It has really helped me and I haven't noticed any side effects.  I take an injection every two weeks.  Wondering if anyone else has experienced problems, side effects or had to stop using Humira.  Thanks!

Hope you don't mind my post because I have no experience with Humira.

 

My husband has RA and it has been discussed in the past for him.

 

My daughter has spondyloarthritis, and none of the more benign regimes have worked for her.  She has even received cortisone injections without any relief.

 

I am wondering if they are going to go to something like Humira to try.  They do use some of the same drugs to treat her issue if the others don't work.

 

Glad to hear someone is being helped without experiencing problems.

I took Remicade for a year after being diagnosed.  It did not help me at all.  Could see immediate improvement after starting Humira.  So what works for one person might or might not work for another.  Everyone and every condition is different.
