Starting Humira
mommy2isaac posted:
Hi everyone. I have RA. I tired Methotrexate but developed pulmonary fibrosis. I am now on Arava & prednisone but the RA continues to progress. My rheumatologist recommends Humira. My insurance just covered it at 100% but I am scared of the side effects, especially developing cancer: Lymphoma or skin cancer. Is anyone here on Humira? What has your experience been? What advise do you other RA patients have for me? I fear getting cancer or chronic infections on it. I am supposed to start Humira in 2 days.
RA gal,

Hi Janet,

I don't have any experience with Humira, but you may find it helpful to read these reviews from other WebMD readers who have been on Humira. Did you start the Humira? Hope this information helps!

Best wishes,

Hi there

Biologic drugs are a real breakthrough. If you are ill enough to qualify and your specialist recommends them then you should. The disease side effects are worst than the drug. Having said that, people can develop antibodies so a new biologic will need to be tried. I am on my third with great results. Yes, the side effect can be serious but so is the disease. The key issue is quality of life now. Got for it.
