I have to start Humira shots soon. After taking Humira for awhile, does the drug effectivity decrease? I hear these shots help a lot of people. I'm just wondering how long I can expect this drug to make me "feel better"?

Hi there, that is a tough question. I was good for 4 months and then didnt work, some have been on it for a year or more and doing great! It depends on your severity and where your Crohns is. Everyone is different so no one can really say how long. I wished they worked for me.

To all humira users.
Anybody feels symtoms like weakness in the legs and sore muscles in both legs and arms ? Read that these effects were common but wanted to hear from this forum as well.

Ok thanks, 5 iron.
I'm currently in dialog with my GI nurse, since I'm also beginning to be swollen/itchy at the area of injection for a couple of days after taking humira. The pain in my arms is still present. :-(

Hi 5 iron,
Thx doing quite well. The redness from the injection diappears after a couple of days, according to the leaflet in the humira package its a common reaction. Arms/elbows are a bit better. Did some research on it and it could just as well be the crohns itself generating the soreness/pain in the joints. Anyway its deteriorating which is positive.
