OUr niece aged 13 is currently on methotrexate, prednisone as well as frusemide, ramipril now stopped, omeprazole. On the outside she is positive but very tired a lot of the time. On the inside, is another story. She first went into hospital last April and it is nearly a year since she started treatment for Takayasu's arteritis. Her internal physiology has not improved and humira has now been brought forward as a possible treatment - the info online about this is frightening, but there are also positive stories. It feels like she is an experiment for anyone who comes across her medically. We just want her to show some sign of improvement. Anyone out there who has been using humira and can share their experience ?
