Humira Losing Effectiveness

Humira Losing Effectiveness

I have been on Humira for about 8 months. At the start it worked well, but for the past 2 months I have had flare ups. Has anyone else had the problem of a biologic that has stopped working? If so, what do you think caused it?
I'm seeing my Derm this week. I hope I can get some answers.

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

Some Humira patients actually form antibodies against the drug. Your rheumatologist can run a humira antibody blood test to see if that is why you are no longer responding to it.

Does Anyone With Close Relative With Ms Successfully Take Enbrel Or Humira?

Does Anyone With Close Relative With Ms Successfully Take Enbrel Or Humira?

My Mom has ms and I have psoriatic arthritis (not much psoriasis) Since 2011 or 12 different rheumatologists have wanted me to take enbrel or humira but I am afraid of ms/nervous system side effects. Took methotrexate, otezla, sulfasalazine, now stelara for almost year. Stelara helps but could be better. Dr still recommends enbrel. Any insights? Thanks very much. My dads mom died of als which of course is also neurological.

Extreme Tiredness

Hello,

For the last year I have been on a range of treatments for my psoriasis. Starting with phototherapy, then methotrexate and currently ciclosporin. Nothing has really worked. Starting biologics soon. I am suffering from extreme tiredness and a lot of headaches. Does anyone else suffer from this and can offer any help?

Has Anyone Been On Methotrexate For A Long Time

Has Anyone Been On Methotrexate For A Long Time

I have been on Methotrexate for nearly two years, the drug has worked very well for my condition. I have psoriasis arthritis.

Has anyone been on this drug for a long time? I envisage being on it for ever and just curious to see whether it has had an impact on the body/immune system with the effects that the drug does to slow down/stop the inflammation/stiffness.

Has Anyone Changed From Using Enbrel To Stelara?

Has Anyone Changed From Using Enbrel To Stelara?

Recently I have noticed that my plaque psoriasis is getting worse. I have been on enbrel for nearly 5 years and found it to be excellent. In conjunction with increase in plaque psoriasis I was getting severe tendinitis in elbows. As part of investigations into this, my doctor has discovered some deterioration in the linings of some joints which indicates active psoriatic arthritis. For this reason he believes the Enbrel has become less effective and is recommending I change to Stelara. anyone… read more
