Humira Drug Interactions

Humira Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Humira is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Biologic Medications
Adalimumab (the active ingredient in Humira) is a biologic medication. In general, combining adalimumab with another biologic medication is not recommend, as it might increase your risk of getting an infection or experiencing other side effects. 
 
Live Vaccines
Live vaccines are immunizations that contain live viruses or bacteria. If you receive a live vaccine while taking Humira, it is possible that you might become infected with the virus or bacteria from the vaccine. Also, Humira can make live vaccines less effective. You should not receive live vaccinations while taking Humira.
 
Because Humira crosses the placenta to the developing baby during pregnancy, it is unknown if giving live vaccines to babies who were exposed to Humira during pregnancy is safe or effective.
