Hi everyone, my name is Kelly and I have been on Remicade for treatment of Crohns disease for over 2 years now. I developed psariasis because of the remicade. I know it is a drug to help psariasis, but i am one of the lucky few that it causes it.
Now my doctor has suggested putting me on Humira instead. I hear the Humira is painful. Is this to be true?
My first shot of Humira will be in May and I will give myself 4 shots to begin with. This seems rather severe if they are painful. I guess not as painful as having iv treatments when you have to sit for 3 hours waiting for the Remicade to be put into your system.
What does everyone choose, Humira or Remicade?
I think the Humira would be better because you give yourself a shot and its over. With Remicade I have to go to the infusion lab and sit there for over 3 hours. Painful or not, I will try Humira and see how that is.
Give me your opinion and tell me what one you would choose.
