If you have been prescribed Humira and need to stop taking it, make sure to speak with your doctor. Humira as you know is a very strong medication that affects your immune system in many different ways.
Many people decide to stop taking Humira for the following reasons:
- Cost is too expensive
- They have improvements in their condition
- No improvements in condition are noticed
- Side effects are not worth the benefits
- Want to try another less powerful medication
The best thing that anyone can do when attempting to stop use of Humira is to speak with a doctor who has worked with other patients in this condition. The decision to begin using an immune suppressant drug is a big one, and the decision to stop using one is also a big one.
