  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • My daughter was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease 5 years ago and began treatment with Humira and Methotrexate about two years ago. Three months ago our doctor discovered and surgically removed three (3) enlarged lymph nodes in left side of neck. She has intermittent moderate pain in right side of neck around the area of her carotid artery but no abnormal lymph nodes. Pain increases when doctor pressed on carotid artery.

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • over the last 6 month she has increasingly had fits of rage the most recent lasting for over 10 hours including paranoia, 2 suicide attempt . she attacked her husband cutting him on the face with car keys because her sister in law hugged him who was there with her own husband her brother to help clam her down which no one could do, the police had to be called. the police after releasing her recommended she go to the hospital and receive consulting which she refused.
    even after all that hours later she text him saying ,she was resigning from her job ,he can have the kids ,he can keep everything the house the cars everything ,she was leaving town and he will never see her again.
    i know this woman well enough to know that she is a dedicate mother and she would never just give up her house or the car that's paid for let alone ABANDON HER CHILDREN because she was having problems with her husband a man i've known my whole life my brother!
    no way does this behavior make any sense, i've never seen or heard of anything like this .
    this makes no sense ,so i asked myself what changed in her life ,she got RA about 1 year ago ,6 months ago started HUMIRA after using something else ,plus prednisone, and another autoimmune med.
    this is the only thing that makes sense so i went online ,looked side effect of HUMIRA , and BAM now her fits of rage and depression paranoia NOW IT ALL ADD'S UP
    SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS that way she was out of control she might had killed her entire family, if you have trouble believing this then i guess u just have to be there,
    i'm still playing that explosion of anger and rage in my head and still can't believe it and i was there
    people out there report anything that even suggest a side effects

    I'm a 68 year old female who has been getting Humira shots every other week for about seven years because of EXTREMELY severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. My entire body was affected, and I couldn't even use the bathroom alone or hold a glass of water. I was first put on Prednisone...only 10 mg. which caused me to become EXTREMELY violent plus a HUGE increase in weight, but did NOTHING for the pain and swelling. I was then given Humira which was a GODSEND! In a week, I could hold a glass of water and again and feed myself. Within a MONTH, I was my old self again! However, it took awhile for the Prednisone to leave my body as I had to scale it down. I would NEVER take it again! I've heard of others even attempting suicide or committing murders while on Prednisone. I feel it should be taken off the market. I have a feeling the person's "fits of rage" were caused by the Prednisone as it does have that as a side effect whereas Humira does not. NEVER take both at the same time!!! Humira is an excellent drug for severe RA, but one must be monitored for any side effects by a blood test each month.
