This is the Big Guns for RA

By 

from Kaukauna, WI

Comments about Humira Adalimumab:

Perfect choice for someone who has RA. After reading the side effects of the product and understanding the seriousness then you need to ask yourself if also just sitting around, laying around and hurting is just as unhealthy. It's a very serious medicine that is taken only after the smaller treatments don't work...it works best if taken early in the disease.

I took this for many months and it helped quite a lot. It stopped working as well for me so I had to switch over to another medicine.
I cannot say enough good about how this drug has helped me.

HUMIRA helps my Psoriatic Arthritis

By 

from Trenton, NJ

Comments about Humira Adalimumab:

I've been on HUMIRA for a few months now after over a year of pain and suffering. Within the first couple months I could feel the difference in my joints. I still have a lot of swelling and pain but it is better than it was before. I have fewer days where I feel like I just cannot do anything at all. I have a full-time job and before HUMIRA I was missing work on a regular basis due to my Psoriatic Arthritis. Since I started HUMIRA, I have had a couple of really bad days, similar to before starting, but I have not yet missed work.

I use the syringe and have had no problems giving myself the injections. The medication burns a little if I try to rush the injection but over all it is not a terrible experience. The dosing schedule works for my life - I cannot imagine needing to go to an infusion center for my medication! I chose the syringe over the pen because I do not have a lot of body fat and I have heard that the pen can seriously bruise and burn if you don't have enough fat.

HUMIRA is not a magic drug. There is no such thing. Being immunosuppressed sucks. Injections are no fun. But this is so much better than life without HUMIRA.

This has changed my life!

By 

from Racine, WI

Comments about Humira Adalimumab:

Humira is in my opinion one of the best products on the market.  It has toally changed my life and I can't imagine life without it.  I would definately hate to think about my life if I hadn't started to take it.  Before I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, I could barely walk.  It hurt so bad to get out of bed that I was depressed and not finctionong.  I found myself altering my lifestyle drasticall so I ould not have to get in and out of my car or get out of my chair.  I was in so much pain I cried myself to sleep at night.  It was horribe.  My doctor Finaaly prescribed Humira for me and it was a mirable!  The next day after I took it I felt better.  I was able to walk again and at leat feel like a normal human being.  That was 6 years ago and I am still a regular user.  It hurts a little when you use it.  I shoot it up in my leg.  The stinging only last a few seconds- I think it takes about 10 seconds to enter the skin using the Humira Pen.  I have had no side effects ot problems and I feel great!  I would tell anyone who is having severe arthritis issues to try humira

Humira helps for RA

By 

from Concord, NC

Comments about Humira Adalimumab:

**Humira is a good injection if you have rheumatoid arthritis.  It is in the drug class TNF-blocker.  It is an injection that you can take once a week and it has to be stored in the refrigerator.  I had a reaction to it where you inject it.  You have to alternate every week to a different site.  The reaction I had though was read and it swelled up pretty big.  I would have to take an allergy medication to get the swelling to go down.  Everyone stated that this was a common reaction,which I believe, because I am taking a new injection now and it does the same thing, it just doesn't do it as bad.  It comes in a injector pen so it makes it easier and you don't have to draw up your own medications.  I also was told by my doctor that people who take Humira can develop sinus infections frequently which I did,but I didn't know about until after I had been on it awhile.  I just figured that I was going to be the queen of sinus infections.**
