I started humira 8 weeks ago. It is the first medicine that I didn’t have a bad reaction to. I have been taking 5mg of prednisone a day for the past month. I am feeling very tired, but often am unable to sleep. I get about 5 to 6 hours at night, then I’m up for about an hour and a half, sleep another hour or so, then have a little energy for about 2 hours. By mid afternoon I’m super fatigued but am unable to take a nap. My body is very tired but my brain won’t shut off. I’m take b complex supplements as well as a some other vitamins. I eat a decent diet but don’t get much exercise. Psoriasis has improved slightly.
My recent blood work was bad. Sed rate was 37. Liver enzymes in the 140’s.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I really need to be able to function better without being so wiped out all the time.
