Hi has anyone experienced very low mood whilst on Adalimumab. It is mentioned on the side effects. After every injection - a few days after the low mood/depression starts. It seems to be getting worse the more weeks go on. Due to see consultant next week.

I have psoriatic arthritis.

    Hello @MSimpkins and welcome to the Community. We are a friendly and supportive group and I hope that will be your experience too.

    I am sorry to hear you have been experiencing symptoms of low mood and depression since starting Adalimumab. This can really drag you down and is a lot to cope with in addition to the symptoms of psoriatic arthritis. I am glad to hear you have an appointment coming up with your consultant next week which will be a good opportunity to talk things through. The rheumatology nurse helpline can usually be contacted between clinic appointments. It may also help to talk to your GP about how you are feeling.
