I take methotrexate, and small doses of prednisone. Does humira have bad side effects with those two? Is it bad for auto immunedefeciencies also?

My auto immune deficiencies are with psorisis and psoriatic arthritis.Some side effects I read, make humira sound unsafe.
Given none of your provided info involves active infections, Humira should be fine, but I am hesitant to say this in light of your reference to "antiimmunedefeciencies." If this is a typo for autoimmune or immune deficiency then Humara would be contraindicated due to its immunosuppressant nature... preexisting deficits of natural immunity and added immune system suppression (especially at the severity at which Humira acts this way) could pretty much leave you open to death by common cold. If you mean you've got an autoimmune disorder, indicating an overactive response to random things, then all you'd have to worry about is a delay in the healing time of psoriasis flareups.
The thing I think I most want you to remember is that a doctor has to prescribe Humira... it's not an opiate so there is no market for it on the streets. This the case, I really think your doctor will or will not choose to prescribe Humira depending on benefit/risk analysis. No need for a second, layman opinion. Go to the source.
