First dose of Humira today

I was expecting much worse.

I wouldn't suggest poking yourself in the leg

I am tired/exhausted like after a dose of Remicade. I hope that this goes away after I sleep well tonight.


I'll update here if anything changes.

The fatigue was very bad for my daughter through the loading doses and then got better with each set of injections. Now at month 5 or so she can have the injection in the morning and go on with her day like nothing happened. I hope it improves as well for you. Give it some time.

Everything has gotten better since Tuesday. The combination of the Humira and my other medication that I just started taking (the name escapes me right now) leaves me with an upset stomach, but i just fight through it.

Still upset stomach daily, don't really want to eat ever. No other signs of a flare. I might ask for something to help

Is it Methotrexate? That can cause nausea. Good idea to ask for something to help. You need to eat to keep your strength.
