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.

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.

Humira Side Effects

Humira Side Effects

Hi all

I have had psoriasis for 23 years (since 18). Over the last 10 years it has become chronic and severe - 80% coverage, including scalp, ears, nails.

I am now on Humira and my skin has clearly totally, for which I am so grateful. However, the Humira itself is making me feel like hell. I have zero energy; can sleep all night and all day; am breathless and… read more

Were You Scared By These Medicines At First?

Were You Scared By These Medicines At First?

I am newly diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. I am still at the point of deciding which medicine to try first. Which of course will have a lot to do with insurance. To be honest these meds scare the hell out of me. I am hopeful for the improvement that may come, but the medicines can be brutal. Where you scared at first?
