Two days

Will it be bad for me that I was two days late in giving myself the Humira injection two days late?

I had my delivery delayed by a couple days one time, and my doc wasn't too alarmed. I suspect there's some leeway included in the "two weeks" time frame. Generally speaking, is it helping you? You've only been on it for a month or so, correct?

I think close to four months. I think I have both good and bad days.

It shouldn't be a huge issue of its a one time thing. Obviously I would try and avoid being late in the future but life happens.

The dosage is timed so that it will not drop below a certain level.
You probably will get away with it on a one time basis but try to keep to the appropriate
timing so that therapeutic levels are maintained.
I would not worry about it for the odd occasion.

Ds has held humira for a day or two due to infection per his docs orders
Wasn't the worst but obviously not the best either
Ds has gone from evety 14 days
To every 10 days
To every 7 days
To every 5 days
Over 4.5 years
So timing can change a lot

As others said just try to stick to the Schedule much as possible

Is that the day you take it usually? If so I would say yes. 1 dose 2 days early won't hurt anything.

What was the determining factor to change the frequency of the treatment? Of course I'm guessing that the longer intervals weren't effective but I'd figure that the docs would try something else if it wasn't working at the closer intervals.
