Started with Methotrexate but due to lung damage from RA I had to switch. Humira has worked well for the last 2 years. I am taking it once per week so I have a higher risk of pneumonia, .... I have to be vigilant about avoiding situations where I could pick up a cold or virus. Pen works great for me.

Comment:
I was diagnosed with RA in 2011. I began taking only methotrexate for the first six months and received some relief, but stiffness in joints and pain continued to be problematic so the RA doctor prescribed Humira.
