Hi, I was just diagnosed with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis two weeks ago. My Dr. prescribed humira. After reading about this drug I am nervous about taking it. I would love some feedback from anyone who has used this drug. How effective was/is it? Did you have any side effects? How long does it take to start working? Would you recommend based on your experience? Any info you can give is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!!
Hey Deb32, Humira worked great for about a year. Almost 7-8 months in my face began to feel and look swollen. Especially around my eyes. Rhemutologist then prescribe Enbrel. Often these meds can loose their effect after awhile. I keep a journal on this journey!
Humira was the first biologic I tried. Tried to convince my doctor that it’s not for me. Insurance protocols interfere. I was on it for a year with on-going chronic flares and no pain relief. Presently; I’m on a DRMD (Otezla), no notable changes in my psoriasis or PsA. Back to Humira; it’s been maybe two years off of it. I’m having health conditions appearing that indicate organ concerns. Again, everyone is different. I hope you get some relief.
Hello 👋🏼! I’m on Humira and I’ve been on it for a while. Like anything else it takes a while. After my second injection I started getting better. Few side effects but they went away as I used it. Everyone is different. I’ve been using it for fifteen years and it’s still working for me. I also used Enbrel but the doctor switched me to the Humira. I take vitamins and supplements to combat the adverse effects. And also exercise I keep myself moving. I also talk to my doctor if any changes. What can I say it’s working for me. Wish you well and hope this helps you. 🤓
I am just going into my 3rd month of using Humira I have been told that it takes up to 3 months to see improvement. So far it is not any worse but not any improvement yet.
