I took my first two shots this past thursday, today is wednesday and at first I thought it was getting a bit better but I think its getting a bit worse being that I am noticing areas not affected before. I will give it a chance after reading these reviews.
At what point did you notice psoriosis getting better after using the Humira?
Added 10 Sep 2009:
tomorrow will be two full weeks after taking the first shots. Next week I will take the one marked day 21. It still seems to be spreading but I think that some of the worse places on my thigh seems to be "drying up". It has now spread to my neck and upper chest and the back of my neck and my I am getting more on my scalp. I just want to document this so if anyone else is curious about the process.

Today is day 21, the 3 week mark. I am itching a lot lot more now (because they are trying to dry up?) It appears that they are getting lighter in color and the ones on my neck have almost went away. I have one big one on my thigh that seems to be getting better and that one that come at the start of all of this and has been probably the worse one. Hanging in there!
Thanks for responding! I have high hopes for this medicine!

This treatment is going to take a while.
Clinical studies show that about 60 percent of patients taking HUMIRA 40 mg every other week achieved at least a 75 percent improvement in disease extent and severity after 24 weeks. See http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/11403.php
I could not find any information on exactly when improvement of psoriasis is first noted. Good luck.
