I have chrons and take humira among many other meds. Since starting I am no longer anemic, however I am vitamin d deficient. Have taken one 3 month 50k ibu course but my levels are now lower. Looking for other opinions.?

They all have similar side effects- the risk of severe infection. Good luck to you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
