Use Of Humira

Use Of Humira

My doctor is planning on starting me on humira. I've read so many scary things about it. Are there other less toxic drugs that work just as well. The threat of lymphoma is daunting.

I'm not sure about this. In other words I don't know to much about Humira. There are a lot of people on here that hopefully they can give you some info. Be praying for you my friend to make the right decision.

Did not know about correlation between Lymphoma & Humira... What other choice do we have if we want to feel decent most days?? I cannot afford to self-pay a Functional Medicine Dr.,buy supplements to go with, nor do I have the energy or health to follow rigorous routines. Can say, my Rheumatologist changed me over to Enbrel, as my liver #'s got high . Did well otherwise on Humira, and now am doing even better on Enbrel & liver #'s are pretty close to normal range again. So far, so good.I go in for bloodwork this week, shall see what results have to say...

That's new info for me. I'm currently on the same. No one has advised me of that. Hoping you don't have to go through that. Be well!
