I switched to Humira and had the same strong success I originally had with Enbrel. My sed rate tracks closely with disease activity and it has been normal for years. I think I have the year I started in my signature line.

Good luck!


Question for you: were you fused before taking a biologic and do you think it has slowed your progression?
