Yes it can: Humira (adalimumab) can cause "lack of energy" feeling, but not very common. I assume that you had gastric surgeries? Since you food intake is significantly reduced after the surgeries, this can itself cause the lack-of-energy feeling for quite some time until you body has the time to readjust. Also, thyroid dysfunction as well as depression can cause this feeling ..So, onsult your doc..
