  • ActemraA, Sun Jan 29, 2012 07:19
    Hi All. My husband has broken through Humira and will be out on Actemra next. I can read all the information I like on the net but I think the real information comes from you guys. If anyone would like to share their personal experiences with it that would be great. Good and bad... better to be informed I think.
