Boxed Warning:

Serious infections. Malignancy.

HUMIRA Warnings/Precautions:

Increased risk of serious or fatal infections (eg, TB, bacterial sepsis, viral, invasive fungal [treat empirically if develops], or other pathogens). Active infections: do not initiate therapy. Chronic or history of recurring infections. Conditions that predispose to infection. Travel to, or residence in, areas with endemic TB or mycoses. Test/treat latent TB and HBV infection prior to initiating therapy. Monitor closely if new infection, active TB (even if initial latent test is negative), reactivation of HBV, or blood dyscrasias occurs; discontinue if serious or opportunistic infection, sepsis, HBV reactivation, or hematological abnormality develops. Lymphoma and other malignancies. CHF (monitor). Immunosuppression. Discontinue if lupus-like syndrome with antibody formation or serious hypersensitivity reaction occurs. Central or peripheral nervous system demyelinating disorders; consider discontinuing if develops. Pediatric patients: follow up on current immunizations before starting therapy; consider risks/benefits prior to vaccinating exposed infants in utero. Latex allergy. Elderly. Pregnancy. Nursing mothers.

HUMIRA Classification:

Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blocker.

HUMIRA Interactions:

Avoid live vaccines. Concomitant other biologic DMARDs (eg, abatacept or anakinra) or other TNF blockers: not recommended. Immunosuppressants increase risk of infection.

Adverse Reactions:

Inj site reactions, infections (may be serious), headache, nausea, rash, abdominal pain; rare: malignancies (eg, lymphoma; esp children), blood dyscrasias, neurological events, antibody formation, lupus-like syndrome.
