My rheumy is starting me on Humira. She just recd approval from my insurance but i haven't recd it yet. A week ago I weaned off of 1mo of prednisone which took the inflammation away so I feel human again. Been on mtx & hydro (plaq) since Jan 2014. Don't know if the meds kicked in or if I'm still feeling the effects of the pred? Because the inflammation has not returned since I ended the pred. My question: If I take a break from mtx & plaq w/out Dr approval for 10 days, will I have bad withdrawals or problems?
Why would I want to take a break? I want to see if I'm in a remission. I thought the inflammation would return quickly but its only been a week so maybe too soon?
