How soon can I start working out after starting Humira?

Quick question, recently started Humira and my joints are in their healing process. How long should I wait before I start physical activities or working out like normal again? Even though it has been a week and I’m feeling significantly better, I feel like I should wait for a few more for my joints to heal. Thanks.

    My personal opinion is give it some more time, your body has been under significant strain and would be grateful for the “rest” period. I agree, I would check with the doctor before starting a regular work out routine that is what you were used to. Maybe ease your way in to it!? I am so so happy that you are feeling better! – Clair, Community Moderator

    I think it would depend on how you feel. We are all different and respond different ways. You can also reach out to your doctor for answers.

    Thank you,

    You may want to ask the pharmacist or reach out to a Humira rep. Personally, I think it just depends on you and your body. Definitely, don’t push yourself – especially because you’re at greater risk for getting an infection/virus. You don’t want to push your immune system too hard.
