More information

  • Usage

    What is Humira used for? Humira belongs to a class of medications known as tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blockers (similar to Enbrel). Specifically, Humira (adalimumab) is a human IgG1 monoclonal antibody synthesized using recombinant DNA technology that binds to TNF-alpha, an inflammatory chemical that is found in places like joint fluids and psoriatic plaques in the body. Ultimately, the mechanism by which Humira works is not well understood. Humira is indicated in specific groups of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, Crohn’s disease and plaque psoriasis. After use of Humira, levels of inflammatory markers such as C-reactive protein and the erythrocyte sedimentation rate decreased.

  • Humira – Side Effects

    The Humira pen, like other medications, can cause side effects when used.

People with a known hypersensitivity or allergy to Humira or any of its components should not use the medication pen. Humira and alcohol should not be used together. Questions about possible side effects related to Humira use should be discussed with a pharmacist and medical provider before use.

  • Cost Information

    Humira is a very expensive medicine on a cash basis, costing almost $2,600 per Humira pen. The cost of a Humira pen may be covered by some insurance plans.
