I have had Psoriasis since the age of 8, and up until a few months ago I had just come to terms with the fact that I would be covered in scaly, itchy, red skin for the rest of my life. Until I had a glimmer of hope and a doctor convinced me to see a new dermatologist. Well long story short he prescribed me Humira, which is injected every other week. Well the doctor told me it would take four months to see results but I have seen them in the first two weeks. I feel like I have been given a new take on life. While I was in the doctor's office, he let me know that Humira is a category "B" drug and is FDA approved to be safe to take during pregnancy.
I have been doing research myself, and have found mixed reviews. DH and I have decided it is worth it for me to continue my Psoriasis treatment with Humira during pregnancy due to the mental effects that the disease has on me. After having DS #1, my Psoriasis has taken over my body and therefore my life. Being able to be free of this is unlike any freedom I could imagine and something I hold very sacred to my life.
I am wondering if anyone has had personal experience with Humira and pregnancy? Although I have no reason to fear my use of the drug during pregnancy, I can't help but let it cross my mind. Just hoping for some perspective. Thanks Ladies!!
