  • Humira Information












  • Humira Information

    Humira

    Description

    Humira is used to treat the signs and symptoms, particularly structural damage from severe rheumatoid arthritis. The active ingredient in Humira is adalimumab. Humira is taken subcutaneously in the form of a syringe.

    Contraindications

    Humira should not be administered to patients with a hypersensitivity to the drug or any of its components.

    Possible Side Effects

    Patients taking Humira should first receive a tuberculin skin test, also known as a Mantoux test, as cases of latent (dormant) tuberculosis have been known to become active in patients using Humira.

    Severe, even fatal, infections can occur, and one should call a doctor immediately if they experience signs of infections, such fever, chills, night sweats, weight loss, red or burning painful skin, painful urination, or sore throat.

    Possible Interactions

    Do not receive a "live" vaccine immediately prior or during treatment with Humira, as it can cause an infection, or may be ineffective.

    Other over-the-counter medications may interfere with Humira. One should tell their doctor any medications they are taking prior to using Humira.
