Humira & The Flu

  • By Sean

    Does anyone on Humira have any experience with having the flu and what to expect?

    I don’t have it, and hope not to get it, but I do live in one of the states where it’s pretty widespread right now. And my wife is a grade school teacher so she brings home her share of crud.

    Has anyone here on Humira (or another biologic) ever had the flu? Were the symptoms worse? Did it take longer to get over? Did you have to skip an injection?

    Just curious what to expect, as a first time Humira user, should the flu come my way. Thanks!

    My doctor told me to get the flu shot when I was on Humira. I haven’t had the flu or a cold in over 15 years.

    Thank you,

    Diane
