How Long Does It Take For Humira To Work

17 year old male, diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis - IV steroids did not work, 1st dose (4 shots) of Humira along with tapering dose of steroids. How long till we know if/when this will work? Is there an "average" or "standard" time to wait?

Answer

usually, it takes a couple of months for Humira to kick into a substantial degree, but it's quite likely that you may see improvements before that. Exactly when seems to person to person, so unfortunately, I can't give you a specific time. Probably at least a month before you start noticing improvements, but it's possible you may see something before that.

I hope it works for you.
