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.
