Storage Methods

Humira is kept in the refrigerator. It should never be frozen and should not be used if it has been frozen. If you are traveling, you will need to find a way to keep your Humira cold (such as using a cooler with ice packs).

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Humira as scheduled, take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose of Humira.


Humira comes in two different forms:
  • Humira Pen (a prefilled injection device used to automatically inject Humira) -- contains 40 mg Humira
  • Humira Prefilled Syringe (must be injected manually) -- contains 20 or 40 mg Humira, depending on the strength.
Both the pens and prefilled syringes come with everything you will need to inject Humira, including alcohol pads, needles, and detailed instructions.
