The last paragraph of this article gets me. "...Abbott downplayed the risk of Humira side effects, including the risk of Central Nervous System (CNS) demyelination, which can cause optic neuritis, transverse myelitis, multiple sclerosis or other nerve problems." These aren't minor side-effects like dry mouth, these conditions will impact your life dramatically and forever.
I wonder what other health risks Abbott Labs have downplayed. Adding the nerve damage issues would just be a few more health problems that you risk developing by treatment with these biologic meds. LOL when the freaking side-effect profile lists almost 100 possible negative consequences that may happen to you if your lucky, what's 105. People must really be desensitized OR maybe patients trust their doctor and are completely clueless. Unfortunately, to know all the important details of something, requires effort on your part. You have to do your own research - Trust no one
