Humira has been officially cock-blocked until I try and fail some old-school meds first. This is not really a big deal, as I wasn’t the one insisting on Humira in the first place. As of this morning I’m giving Plaquenil a try in addition to Arava which I’ve been on for a few months. I really hope it helps as well as the Humira did. That’s the only real frustration here is that it WAS helping me quite a bit and now I have to start over. Meh, whatevers.
I could have tried to get the drug company to foot the bill but I figured it wouldn’t be that big a deal to jump through a few hoops. Who knows, maybe the old DMARDs will work just fine for me. The annoying thing is that the older meds take a long time to really kick in and start working. I’m having a minor flare a day before I would have been doing a Humira injection. Such is life I suppose.
Time to compose myself, take some meds and go to work. Have a lovely day folks!
