Advice & Tips: I found humera (adalimumab) very effective for 3 years. The effectiveness gradually wore off when my body became resistant. Switched to enbrel to see if there was any difference, I didn't respond. Perhaps when you become resistant to one, you are resistant to them all? I don't know for sure.
