... when I get home, I fall asleep as soon as I sit down. Any suggestions?
I have rheumatoid arthritis,since one year,I take methotrexate 20mg weekly,followed by 1gm folic acid(one day apart). and ketoprofen 50mg when I have pain. I feel very tired for 24 hours after subcutaneous injection of methotrexate. that is why I asked my doctor to prescribe humira for me.he refused ,and he told me that ,mesotrexate is better.I did not try humira before,so I advice you to try methotrexate and folic acid( 1gm folic acid after 24 hours of methotrexate intake(oral or I.M. or subcutaneous) I wish the best for you.
I was on humira for 10 months and experienced the same fatigue and exhausted, especially the first week after my injection... I tried tablets to help me sleep, vitamins and eatin healthy but found no solution. Unfortunately I had to consider changing my meds to get a better quality of life... In my case humira wasn't lowering my levels at all. Sorry this is no solution just sympathy :)
