Reviews for Humira to treat Crohn's Disease, Acute
"My doctor prescribed Humira for my Crohn's disease about 6 months ago. Within that time I have experienced no benefits as a matter of fact my flare-ups are increasingly becoming worse and more painful. It is affecting my ability to work and perform simply activities of daily living. the side effects are endless. I would not recommend this form of treatment. I am currently researching other alternatives for my severe Crohn's disease."

"The few months I was on humira was the sickest I've ever been in my entire life. I got the flu- lasted 4 weeks, pink eye, cold sore, again for 4 weeks, you name it and I got it. This was about 5 years ago, and I have since had 4 basil cell carcinoma surgeries on my FACE, and found this site because I believe I now have a Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Leak. It did NOTHING to help the crohn's, nor the accompanying arthritis. Want to spend 6 months in bed wishing you were in a coma, then this is for you."

"It was awesome while it lasted but it eventually caused pressure in my spinal fluid and gave me very severe headaches. I had to go off of Humira. I developed severe Crohn's symptoms and had to have a permanent ostomy. I will soon get a proctectomy also."

"I had an ileostomy 34 years ago, whilst in my 20s, for severe Ulcerative Colitis. After many obstructions I had been left with short bowel syndrome. Two years ago I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease after fistulas started leaking faeces through my skin. After a 6 hour surgery I was put on Humira. After a year I came out of remission and was put on Humira weekly. Despite that I am now bleeding internally. I have only 4 foot of bowel left and have just finished 60 day diet without food. I have nowhere to go as my surgeon said further surgery isn't an option. Humira has extended my life by slowing the disease I'm sure. Every day is a blessing and I'm so much better than 2 years ago. I still have time to enjoy life with my family. I'm grateful"

"I've had Crohn's Disease since I was 8 years old. I am 52 now. I've had over 15 surgeries related to the disease. Humira has made my life so much better than I can ever remember it being. Not only is the medication great, but between the manufacturer (Abbvie), Connecticare,& Walgreens, they have me on a reduced cost plan which makes it easily affordable ."

"Within 4 months of having the maximum dose once a week, I was pain free! I inject myself weekly with the pen and together with Methotrexate, the Crohns and rheumatoid arthritis are simply bad memories now."

"I have been taking Humira for about 3 years now and it has worked amazingly well. For active lifestyle patients such as myself, I would highly encourage you to ask your physician about using Humira before any other biologic. The at home/take with you injections cause absolutely no disruption in my lifestyle or travel schedules."
