The reviews I've read, everyone seems very happy with it. When yoy say the injection hurts, or medicine stings, is that because of the injectable pen. Are they better than drawing your own serum and injecting with a normal needle? I will be starting on the injections very soon.
I'm currently on my last regiment of oral meds for my RA. My insurance company will pay for Humira?

I'm also told, with Humira, you inject every other week, with Embrel, its every week. Which of two drugs are the best? I realize everyone is an individual, but am trying to figure out which of the two drugs will best suit me. Has anyone has any side affects from using Humira?
I've been on Humira for a couple of years. If you let Humira warm up for about 15 minutes, it doesn't sting as much. I like the pen. It makes it so easy. I don't think you have the option of syringe and bottle. Cleanup is easy and they give you everything you need but the bandaid. I'm on so many blood thinners that I tend to bleed after I do it.
Yes, I give myself a shot every other week... Same day of the week. They have helped to keep my RA from progressing too fast. That I'm grateful for.
