What Are Your Thoughts On Humira?

What Are Your Thoughts On Humira?

What do you know about Humira. I've taken Otezzla for several years to treat my plaque psoriasis. But it seems to have moved into my finger joints. I went to a new doctor today, whom I was not impressed with. She wants to switch me to Humira which I'm not keen on giving shots to myself every other week plus the side effects scare me. I'm wanting imput. Thanks

I was having some relief with Humira but then my hair started falling out. One in ten people have that side effect. Even my dermatologist was surprised.

stampscc, do steam showers with a few drops of tea tree oil for sinus infections.
do the organic, gluten-free, anti-inflammatory diet. And get a new doctor.

My thoughts exactly. This is not a good time to be compromising our immune systems.

They are wanting me to start it. I also have major concerns about it. Talked to my doctor at the VA today about it and she pretty much told me to take it or suffer. I am prone to sinus infections and with the pandemic going on I'm having a hard time talking myself into it. Have the shots sitting in my fridge but just can't bring myself to doing it. If it would help then great but at what cost? Surely there has to be alternative treatments that can help.
