Comment:
Humira is really a great medication! Very effective. My problem is having to inject myself every two weeks. It's just hard for me. The medication has a little "sting" to it going in, and it is very expensive (thank God for insurance). I did develop rashes on my thighs and hand, but nothing serious. My only question is, what is the long term effect Humira?

A miracle - I'm now taking tap dance lessons at agae 67. After taking for 3 years, went into remission, have not taken for 9 months now & feel great. My Dr said that sometimes Humira will put RA into remission

In my book this is one of the best drugs they came out with. I could hardly walk before taking humira, and within three days I could kick a football.

Developed rash and hives on torso after injection. Very itchy, but without the drug, cannot walk or move my fingers. Wish it had fewer side effects.
