My son has been taking Humira for 7 weeks with no real improvement in his pouchitis. They even bumped him up to weekly injections instead of every other week. Just wondering if we should throw in the towel and try something else. Should there be at least a graduation improvement by now?

How often are they doing scopes to monitor improvement? My doctor is completing them every 4 months to monitor healing of some ulcers. Might be worth asking your doctor what he’s looking at to determine whether a change is needed. I’ve been on Humira every week for about 8 months - and healing is slow so he added Imuran to my collection of meds.
