    I was diagnosed with RA in 2014 and started methotrexate, prednisone, folic acid and Humira subq every two weeks. After the first dose the inflammation and stiffness was reduced about 25%.

    Taking it for both Ulcerative Colitis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. The medication has controlled by arthritis and the colitis is holding steady. I've tried everything and I think this will be be the right medicine for me. Easy treatment compared to Remicade.
