I am a 26yr old female with crohns for 7 years/ 9 surgeries. I was on humera for 8 months and it helped the crohns! However I was hospitalized for congestive heart failure and pneumonia and can no longer tolerate it. I get ssick from the person standing on the other side of the room! Be careful. Its side effects can be just as bad as crohns
Yes I have been oh Humaira for going on four years. One a week instead of everyone days. No side effects at all. You just have to be careful if you get a cold or any small infection call your doctor right away. You have to have a doctor you can trust thank God I have one at Vanderbilt. Hang in
I tried humera for about 5-6 months and it caused me to have drug induced lupus according to my doctor in Boston. I hope it works better for you. My next drug to try is Leukine which is usually given for chemo patients so I am fighting with insurance to get the drug. I think I have tried all the crohn's drugs and nothing has worked for me. Lots of prednisone, yuck. Good luck.
