Is this normal? I was recently diagnosed with PsA this spring and am new to the drug. Pain is a part of my everyday life. PsA cost me my job. How long does the drug take to be effective and what should I expect side effect wise?
According to drugs.com, side effects should decrease once your body gets used to the drug. I encourage you to read the listing of possible side effects of Humira, which is a TNF (tumor necrosis factor) blocker. There are far too many side effects to list on this post.
If the side effects/pain do not improve, discuss it with your doctor who might want to switch you to a different treatment. Sometimes these treatments can cause more problems than the patient had before treatment. Of course, each person reacts uniquely to medications. I wish you the very best in your search for relief.
