Hello everyone, I am 27 and recently diagnosed with mild/moderate CD. Doctor prescribed Stelara but insurance rejected saying that I need to try Humira first. Anyone have any thoughts on which medication to start on?

Hi! I am 21 years old and am really struggling with Ulcerative Colotis.I started on Enyvio and it did not work for me. Right now, I am taking Humira and have been for about 2.5 months. I honestly have not noticed a huge change, but I do have more good days than I was having before. They say it could take 4-6 months before noticing improvements so I am just kind of waiting it out. When it comes to biologics, they are tricky because different ones work for different people. It is super frustrating and sucks even more when insurance doesn't cooperate! Hope this helps
