Am presently on Humira and have been for about a year. The Humira was increased from bi-weekly to weekly in the beginning of April. 40 mg/0.8ML (Inject)
Have also been injecting Methotrexate 1X/wk.

Pain has lessened but is not in remission. Am also on Prednisone 5mg and have been for about 4 yrs.

I think its important that you should have pointed to the information that lists the possibility of PML when you take this medication. progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, or PML (look this information up) this infection is not reversable and if you get it you will not live through it.
