what is humira? what do you take it for? Sorry dunno much about it.

Thought for the day: Men are like fine wine. They start out as grapes;
and it‘s up to the women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn
into something acceptable to have dinner with.

 That's why I read the side effects BEFORE I take any meds. Humira was recommended to me a few yrs ago and I looked it up and said No No No. Also Methotrexate and Imuran and Cytoxin. As you said " Am I not sick enough"? Many of the side effects are MUCH WORSE than the disease. Hope you feel OK. badBecause a Doctor recommends them (IV"E LEARNED) doesnt mean there is NOTHING else to try. Half of ALL Doctors graduated at the BOTTOM of the class. RIGHT?
