Humira Losing Effectiveness

Humira Losing Effectiveness

Get Off Humira Or....

Get Off Humira Or....

I have been on Humira for two years and my results are very good. However, I keep getting sick. I have had sinus infection (2 X), bronchitis, and sepsis all within 6 months or so. I see my Derm in a couple of weeks and I am thinking of asking if I should go off the Humira. I really hate to be covered in psoriasis again. Anyone else have this issue and what did you do?
