    Humira question

    An_246691 posted:
    I was diagnosed with RA in July of 2012. After trying numerous combinations of meds without relief of signs & symptoms and/or really bad side effects, I was prescribed Humira in July of 2013. I was taken off Plaquenil but continue with Arava, folic acid. I was wondering what the norm is for biologics as far as how long most people continue on them before they stop working.Are there people out there that have been on them for numerous years? I just wonder what the heck is left after biologics since I'm already on one after only one year (but have been taking for 6 months with good results).thanks in advance for any help.
