Humira

Reviewed by Karlie on

I've been using Humira for 12 weeks for Crohn's disease as well. The greatest benefit for me was that I've been able to come off of Prednisone (which I was on for a year and gained 100 pounds because of it). The only difference I see taking Humira is that I haven't developed any fistulas which I did within weeks of coming Prednisone previously with no other meds on board. The problem I have with Humira is that I have severe swelling in my knees, ankles and feet and my family doctor has recommended that I stop Humira injections because she can't treat the swelling without risking heart problems. I have also developed multiple infections that I cannot get rid of. I have an MRI scheduled in February which is supposed to see if the Humira was having any effect. I do not want to go back on steriods in the interim. As always seems I am stuck between a rock and a hard place.
