I am starting Humira soon, while I was on Remicade I also took Methotrexate.

Is there any thing you take to enhance your Humira?

I take Humira weekly with Imuran daily along with Entocort the past year I had a very bad flare.
I am now SLOWLY weening off Entocort but will remain on Humira weekly and imuran daily.

For me, my doctor said 6mp pills for 3 months WITH the Humira. And Humira every two weeks ( Humira Pen injections.) I see the FNP at my GI's office September 20th to find out if they will continue the 6mp pills. I have actually been on 6mp for 4 months now and Humira 3 months. Thank God I never had the prednisone 😮. Hope you feel better soon. 🦋 ( Oh, I take two 6mp pills a day.)

I am on way more meds than I would like!

I have spent almost 75 days in the hospital this past summer on and off. Not to mention the many ER visits I have had.

My Dr does not like it I don't respond well to the first thing he tries. We all know we are not all alike!

I need a new Dr, one I can trust. My last hospital stay came after trying to get a call back fro my Dr for three weeks, finally got a hold of he office mgr- she had the PA call me. She told
me "they both thought" I was having IBS. Two days later ended up in the hospital, nope no IBS with grade 4 erosive ulcerations all around my esophagus.

I was on Pentasa with Humira for a while, but one of my doctors told me to stop the Pentasa, which I did. I can't tell the Pentasa was really doing anything. Humira helps a lot, but I'm still not in 100% remission.



I also take a B12 shot every two weeks.
