Daughter is in the process of getting Humira
approved again. The first time, about a year ago, we didn't follow through because we wanted to first try less risky anti-inflammatory methods. Imuran
after a 10" resection didn't help. Nor did LDN etc. She's currently on Entocort but it isn't much help so we need to try a heavy-duty biologic. Found out our co-pay is $150/month. Also found out that since Remicade is done as an out-patient procedure, it would be essentially free. Other positive positives: she's a little freaked about the Humira pen, and may be a better candidate for infusion (if they can find her veins...) I hadn't thought to question the doc regarding Humira over Remicade and will do so tomorrow. The $1800/year is a consideration, but not my number one consideration. The big question - is there is a clear advantage of Humira over Remicade for a first time user of these heavy duty biologics?
