what do you mean things went backwards? did the humira stop working while you are pregnant? did they take you off of it when you got pregnant? i am probably starting humira this month but was hoping that we could try to have a baby while i was on it but hadn't found anyone else who had done this personally.AmandaC said:then got pregnant and things went backwards again, but I'm coping.
If the Remicade is working well for you, I wouldn't NOT switch meds. Your employer should be understanding, as it is a medically needed thing that you are doing. If you weren't getting treatment, you would likely miss MORE work.adrian mcdonnell said:Hi Evereyone,
I am currently on infliximab but would like to ask a question regarding humira. How often do you have to go to the hospital whilst on humira? The reason why i ask is that i have to go every 2 months and this is causing a problem with my current employer.
Congrats Procyon! I hope it works quickly for you!Procyon said:I'm finally starting my Humira tonight. Hopefully the pens with go over smoothly...Seems less complicated than self-injecting the Cimzia at any rate. Any tips for the first injections?
Yep! I had the Lovenox inj. in the hospital. Very similar pain wise......I found with the Humira, the loading dose of 4 inj. was the worst because after the 2nd shot, the adrenaline is pretty much wearing off, and I was a bit shakey. Can someone help you at home?Nic said:Went to my GI today and it looks like I will be joining the Humira Club! Should be getting my starter kit soon! They want me started within the next 2 weeks! I'm getting pretty nervous about the pain from the injections!! I'm not very good with needles and shots, although I guess I have gotten alot better since in the last 3 months I've been stuck more than I have in my life!! I used to pass out getting flu shots, so this could be interesting!! LOL
Has anyone ever had the blod clot shot in the tummy (that they give you when your in the hospital)? If so, does the Humira feel anything like that one? That one almost feels like a bee sting but a little worse, only thing is you can't touch that one afterward or it will bruise your entire stomach!!
