  • moderate-to-severe Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • moderate-to-severely-activepolyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) for children andadolescents from 2 to 17 years of age who have not responded adequately toother treatments
  • active Psoriatic Arthritis thathas not responded to treatment with Methotrexate
  • ankylosing spondylitis inadults who have not responded to other treatments

  • moderate-to-severe plaquepsoriasis in adults

  • chronic non-infectious uveitisaffecting the front of the eye in children over 2 years old who have notresponded adequately to or cannot tolerate other treatments

People with these immune conditions produce extra amounts of an inflammatory protein called tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), causing pain, inflammation, and cellular damage. Humira (Adalimumab) works by blocking the production of TNF-alpha to reduce the inflammation in the joints and on the skin. Depending on what Humira (Adalimumab) is being used to treat, it can take 4 to 12 weeks for you to notice an improvement in your condition.

Your doctor may have suggested Humira (Adalimumab) for conditions other than the ones listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are using Humira (Adalimumab), speak to your doctor. Do not stop using Humira (Adalimumab) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Humira (Adalimumab) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to use Humira (Adalimumab) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Humira Dosage

Humira (Adalimumab) is given by subcutaneous (under the skin) injection, usually in the front of the thigh or abdomen. The dose depends on the condition being treated.

For rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis, the recommended dose for adults is 40 mg every other week.

For adults with Crohn's disease or Ulcerative Colitis, the recommended dose is a first dose of 160 mg, then 80 mg 2 weeks after the first dose, then 40 mg every second week starting 4 weeks after the first dose.

For adults with psoriasis or uveitis, the recommended dose is a first dose of 80 mg, then 40 mg every other week starting one week after the first dose.

For children over 2 years old with uveitis, the dose of Humira (Adalimumab) is 20 mg every other week for children who weigh less than 30 kg and 40 mg every other week for children who weigh 30 kg or more.

When treating polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis in children over 2 years old, the dose of Humira (Adalimumab) is 20 mg every other week for children who weigh 10 kg to less than 30 kg. For children who weigh 30 kg or more, the dose is 40 mg given every other week.

For Crohn's disease affecting children 13 to 17 years of age weighing more than 40 kg, the recommended starting dose is 160 mg the first week, 80 mg given at week 2 and then 20 mg every second week, starting on week 4. The dose may be increased to 40 mg every other week depending on your child's response. 

For hidradenitis suppurativa in adults, the recommended dose is a first dose of 160 mg, then 80 mg 2 weeks after the first dose, then 40 mg every week starting 4 weeks after the first dose. For adolescents 12 years of age and older and weighing more than 30 kg, the recommended dose is a first dose of  80 mg, then 40 mg every other week starting 1 week later. Humira (Adalimumab) is used with the guidance and supervision of a doctor. Your doctor or nurse will assist you in the preparation and injection of your first dose (or first few doses). Do not attempt to inject Humira (Adalimumab) on your own until you completely understand how to inject a dose. If you are having difficulty giving yourself injections, ask a family member or other caregiver for help if they are willing to become involved with your treatment and are willing to learn how to give you your injections.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to use Humira (Adalimumab) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, administer it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Humira (Adalimumab) in the refrigerator at 2°C to 8°C, protect it from light, and keep it out of the reach of children. Do not allow it to freeze. The pen or pre-filled syringe may also be stored at room temperature (up to a maximum of 25°C) for a single period of 14 days. If it is stored at room temperature and is not used within 14 days, it must be discarded.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Humira Precautions

There may be an interaction between Humira (Adalimumab) and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of themedications,
  • change one of the medicationsto another,
  • change how you are taking oneor both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Humira (Adalimumab). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications that you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Humira Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Humira (Adalimumab).

Allergic reactions: In rare cases, some people may develop an allergic reaction to Humira (Adalimumab). Signs of an allergic reaction include a severe rash, hives, swollen face or throat, or difficulty breathing. If these occur, contact your doctor immediately. The needle cover on the prefilled syringe contains dry natural rubber. Before you start injections, tell your doctor if you have an allergy to rubber or latex.

Blood disorders: Rarely, people taking Humira (Adalimumab) have become deficient in certain types of blood cells. If you notice signs of anemia (dizziness, pale skin, unusual tiredness or weakness, shortness of breath), signs of infection (such as fever, shaking or chills, fast heartbeat, or quick breathing) or bleeding (such as easy bruising, blood in the stools, black tarry stools, or vomiting blood or material that looks like coffee grounds), seek immediate medical attention.

Cancer: Compared to the general population, people taking Humira (Adalimumab) have a slightly greater risk of developing a cancer of the immune system known as lymphoma. This appears to be more likely if Infliximab, Azathioprine, or Mercaptopurine have also been used. However, the risk is still small. In general, people with severe rheumatoid arthritis who take medications that suppress the immune system over long periods of time may also have a higher risk of developing lymphoma, even if they don't take Humira (Adalimumab). If you experience any of the following or other unusual symptoms, contact your doctor immediately:

  • chills
  • decreased appetite
  • fever
  • night sweats
  • one or more enlarged lymph node
  • unusual fatigue
  • weight loss

Signs and symptoms of lymphoma can vary depending on the extent of the disease and the parts of the body involved (e.g., chest, abdomen, or bowel).

Dizziness: Humira (Adalimumab) may cause dizziness and fatigue. Do not drive or operate machinery until you know that Humira (Adalimumab) does not affect your ability to perform these tasks safely.

Heart failure: Humira (Adalimumab) may cause Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) or worsen existing CHF. If you have CHF, you should be monitored closely by your doctors. Symptoms to watch for include swelling of the feet and ankles and shortness of breath. If you notice these symptoms, contact your doctor immediately.

Immune system disorders: Some people who take Humira (Adalimumab) have developed lupus-like syndrome, an autoimmune disease (a condition where the body is attacked by its own immune system). Symptoms of lupus-like syndrome include chest pain, joint pain, difficulty breathing, and a skin rash (usually on the cheeks and arms) that is sensitive to the sun. If you develop these symptoms, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Infections: Humira (Adalimumab) or other TNF blockers can increase the risk of developing serious bacteria and fungi infections, such as tuberculosis and various types of pneumonia. If you notice signs of an infection such as fever, chills, pain, swelling, or pus, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Tell your doctor if you have an infection or have a history of infections that keep coming back or other conditions that might increase your risk of infections, including fungal infections prior to initiating therapy. Humira (Adalimumab) should not be used in combination with Anakinra, as this can increase the risk of severe infections.

People infected with hepatitis B virus (an infection that can damage the liver) may have a relapse of their condition while taking Humira (Adalimumab). If you are at risk for hepatitis B, your doctor may test you for this infection before starting treatment with Humira (Adalimumab) and will follow your condition closely while you are taking the medication. If you notice symptoms of liver problems, such as abdominal pain, yellow eyes or skin, loss of appetite, fatigue, or dark urine, contact your doctor immediately.

Nervous system diseases: Rare cases of disorders that affect the nervous system have been reported by people taking Humira (Adalimumab) or other TNF blockers. If you are experiencing numbness and tingling, vision problems, weakness in your legs, and dizziness, contact your doctor immediately.

Surgery: There is little information regarding the safety of having surgical procedures if you are using Humira (Adalimumab). You may be at an increased risk of developing infections after the surgery. Let all the medical professionals involved in your care know that you are taking Humira (Adalimumab).

Vaccines: Live vaccines (e.g., yellow fever, BCG, Cholera, typhoid, varicella) should not be given when you are taking Humira (Adalimumab).

Pregnancy: Humira (Adalimumab) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. Contact your doctor if you become pregnant while taking Humira (Adalimumab).

Breast-feeding: It is not known if Humira (Adalimumab) passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Humira (Adalimumab), it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of using Humira (Adalimumab) have not been established for children less than 2 years of age or who weigh less than 10 kg, for the treatment of JIA or for the treatment of uveitis. The use of Humira (Adalimumab) to treat Crohn's disease in adolescents should be limited to children who weigh more than 40 kg and are over 13 years old. When children and teenagers have been treated with Humira (Adalimumab), some have developed lymphoma (cancer of the immune system) and other types of cancer.

Seniors: People over the age of 65 years may be more at risk of side effects from Humira (Adalimumab).
