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.
I was diagnosed with psoriasis at the age of 11 and psoriatic arthritis at the age of 13. I had to get off of humira in 2014 cause I was pregnant and never got back on anything afterward. Past couple years my joints have been hurting so bad along with bad muscle and bone aches. My knees are becoming deformed. I have had this symmetrical rash on my cheeks and all around my hairline and I'm losing hair bad and my dandruff has gotten out of control. My ears are completely white and scaly… read more
What does everyone do about water... If I bathe, wash dishes etc.. Any contact with water makes mine worse. I have tried hundreds of creams, lotions. Humeria, cosentex and now just started a new injection that makes you feel like you have the flu and feels like your bones are on fire. So tired of this
If methotrexate has helped you what kind of psoriasis do you have and where on your body do you have it. I have it on my hands and feet. My dermatologist said it's the hardest to treat those areas. My insurance denied Humira until I try 3 months of methotrexate. I'm on 5 mg every two weeks. Just took my second dose. I'm experiencing headaches and fatigue. Still having flare ups with my skin. I'm sorry we have to meet this way but it's so helpful to have support from you… read more
I tried Otezla and it made me so sick, I cannot take it. My doctor wants me to try Humira. I am afraid of the cancer side effects. I was on Enbrel years ago and it worked, but I got off it because of the cancer side effects. Any thoughts on this?
Does Humira have a support that helps for people who cant afford it? I dont have insurance and it has been mentioned getting humors injections. I recently started Otezla with the help of support I hope it works
Hi my name is Stephanie. I just joined here recently. I was newly diagnosed with severe plaque psoriasis Sept 2018. 8mos later I am still fighting w ins to cover me on Humira and now this disorder has turned into psa.

After being on Methotrexate and ending up poisoned from it the doctor took me off of it and left me on the humira. The humira has worked great for pain but I am still having joint deformity. I am also starting to notice Lupus symptoms, heart palpitations, eye twitching and personality change. I would like to go off the humira and try something more natural for the rash and pain.
Has anyone had an issue with very dry hair while on Humira? I was only on it for about 4 months and besides not working, my hair became very dry, knotty, brittle and breaking/falling out.
