Humira every week

So my doctor is considering bumping me up to 1 humira shot every week rather than 1 every other week. I see symptom improvement for 6-7 days post shot and then backside into how I was feeling before the shot. I just did a Fecal Conprotectin. Does anyone else do a shot once a week?
Or he said we could stick to the current regiment and add imuran.
Any comments suggestions or stories? I am leaning towards one humira shot every week since I feel so good afterwards.

Then you may need to switch to weekly. Everyone is different. I had to switch to another biologic.

Ds currently is on humira every 5days
He was on humira every 7 days for at least a year

He started every two weeks
Then every 10 days
Then every week and now every 5 days
But he has been on humira for over 5 years


Once a week did work really well for over a year

Good luck
