Humira every 10 days

Well after seeing the Rheumo last week and lots of conversations on the phone with docs offices and the specialty pharmacy - the insurance approved the increased. Frequency of humira - only took 8 days
So his first close together 10 day shot will be monday.
Hoping it won't make him too tired for school.

I only noticed a difference when we went weekly. And it wasn't fatigue. He seemed to get some skin infections and some illnesses so they moved us out to 10 days. Good luck. I hope it works its magic. Many say it does the trick putting it closer.

Sorry I must of skipped over this.

When my dd was upped to every ten days I didn't notice a difference in anything but that's why she's onto Remicade.

Now will he go back to every 14 days if he improves?

I hope it works well for him.

Same with us- 10 days didn't help so we went to weekly. That worked wonderfully for a while (with MTX).
Hope it works quickly!
