Can Humira work again?

HI everyone,

I was on Humira for 4 years and then around a year ago it stopped working. I recently visited a doctor for a second opinion who couldn't understand why Humira had stopped working and suggested it may work again whilst taking Aza at the same time.

Has anyone experienced Humira start working again?
Humira can stop working for a variety of reasons, but the main one is your body starts producing antibodies that stop the medicine from working.
You can get a antibody blood test done an also another reason you can have humira not working is your system may need more of it there is also a test for that and you may need to either take 2 pens/syringes fortnightly or go to a pen weekly.
