After 4 months I developed severe pustular psoriasis as a result from using Humira. I have never had psoriasis before using this medication.

Comment:
Have been taking Humira since December 2013. I hate shots and am a "needle phobic", but have to say Humira with methotrexate has kept me from hurting. I feel as though my brain has been freed from pain and I am able to concentrate on other things. Hope it lasts!!!
