Humira withdrawal for lack of a better term?

I am on bi weekly humira injections. I feel relatively decent (cant get off steroids but thats a whole separate issue) from about 24 hours post shot (fiirst 24 hrs are what ive taken to calling the humira flu where im just run down etc) till about 2-3 days before my next shot. I feel *awful* for the last 2-3 days before my next injection. Now, my GI did say 1 day before or after isnt a huge deal but she also says try and stay on schedule of course.

My question is, does anyone else experience something similar and if so is that something worth calling the doc about or should i just let her know at my next appt (which isnt til April unless my recent labs show something)

Some people move to injecting every 10 days instead of 14. It sounds like that might help you? I would ask your GI.

Hmm may call and ask her. Id heard about those doing it weekly but im still okay at 7 days out, its the last 3 or so, so yeah 10 days might actually be really good
