Answers from our Doctors

RheumMD Admin says:

As with any new medication you should discuss this with your doctor as to what is best.
Since there should be testing for latent TB before and during use of biologics and treatment for latent TB prior to starting biologics, this will have to be discussed with your doctor as to if Humira could be used for treating your RA.
