Here is My Question:
I was just prescribed Humira for RA. I also have RRMS, and have not done well with Tysabri; I was recently put on Rituxumab. My doctor doesn't see a problem with both drugs, but I want to make sure there aren't any interactions. What are your thoughts?
Humira is relatively contraindicated in patients with multiple sclerosis. This should only be used in patients with MS and RA who REQUIRE Humira to control their RA AND their MS is well controlled.
