Humira Medication Information

Available by prescription only, Humira® (adalimumab) is a medication used to treat a wide variety of inflammatory conditions that affect the joints, spine, or digestive system. Specifically, this antibiotic is used to treat Crohn's disease, plaque psoriasis, and certain types of arthritis.
 
Humira comes in the form of an injection that is administered just under the skin (subcutaneously). The medicine is given once a week or every other week. It works by blocking the action of a certain chemical in the body that causes inflammation and other problems.
 
Before beginning treatment with Humira, information on this medication's potential risks should be fully reviewed with your healthcare provider. Also, tell your healthcare provider if you have any other medical conditions or if you are taking any other medication, including prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
