About Humira 

Humira is considered a TNF alpha inhibitor, which functions by reducing the effects of a substance in the body that can cause inflammation. Like any TNF alpha inhibitor, this medication can only be used for inflammation.

Some conditions that Humira is known to treat include Crohn’s Disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis. Humira is available only by prescription. It is available in a generic formulation under different brand names, including Abrilada, Amjevita, Hadlima, and Hyrimoz. 

Humira may be prescribed as an injection via prefilled syringe/pen. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage you are prescribed.

If you are prescribed Humira, be sure to complete the entire course of the TNF alpha inhibitor unless your doctor specifically tells you to stop.

If you don’t complete your prescription, the TNF alpha inhibitor may not fully treat your Psoriatic Arthritis, Crohn’s Disease, or rheumatoid arthritis.
