It is usually out of your system quickly, like for the next dose. But if it helped you at all, you will start feeling that too.

As far as infections etc, the first three months you are on it--is the easiest to catch something.

Well, if you were on Humira, your immune system was not normal to begin with. But Humira should be out of your system in 6-8 weeks. That's why they generally require you to go off it for a couple of months before having surgery.
