After humira stopped working for me, I started remicade, which I have been on for about two years now. The treatment schedule has been negatively impacting my life.
Have you experienced any side effects?

    It was actually the opposite for me. I went from Remicade to Humira. I had some neurology symptoms like numbness in my arms and legs and sometimes it felt like my nerves were burning. It also made me exhausted all the time. The process of getting the infusion itself made me sleep for a whole day afterwards which negatively affected me being able to go to school.

    @peashooter Same here with remicade impacting my ability to go to school. I have also had some numbness and nerve pains, so I’m glad that I’m not the only one. Maybe I will see if I can try humira again. I hope it’s working well for you!

    Im just glad I’m not the only one! My doc thought I was making it all up which didn’t help me at all! Humira has been a total dream! I’ve been on it since my sophomore year of high school and now I’m a junior in college! :) I’ve been in remission for about three years now

    Stelara and methotrexate can be administered at home. For infusions I use it as a totally treat day so I don’t dread them! I’ll buy myself a nice book, take some yummy food and use it as a forced time out ❤️

    Thank you! I will definitely look into Stelara and try to make the best out of my upcoming infusions. 💕
