Humira - Overview
Humira is a medication used to reduce inflammatory symptoms in certain types of arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and Crohn's disease. Push Health can connect people who need a Humira pen prescription with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe adalimumab (Humira) when safe and appropriate to do so.
What Is Humira Used For?
What is Humira used for? Humira belongs to a class of medications known as tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blockers (similar to Enbrel). Specifically, Humira (adalimumab) is a human IgG1 monoclonal antibody synthesized using recombinant DNA technology that binds to TNF-alpha, an inflammatory chemical that is found in places like joint fluids and psoriatic plaques in the body. Ultimately, the mechanism by which Humira works is not well understood. Humira is indicated in specific groups of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, Crohn's disease and plaque psoriasis. After use of Humira, levels of inflammatory markers such as C-reactive protein and the erythrocyte sedimentation rate decreased.
Humira Pen - Cost and Dosage
The clear, colorless Humira pen solution is 40 mg/0.8 mL and is produced in a single-use glass syringe. The initial Humira dosage used is commonly 40 mg every other week although the regimen ultimately depends on the prescribing medical provider. The mean terminal half-life of Humira is roughly 2 weeks after administration. Humira is a very expensive medicine on a cash basis, costing almost $2,600 per Humira pen. The cost of a Humira pen may be covered by some insurance plans. Humira coupons may be available online or through the manufacturer. Humira requires refrigeration for storage and should not be frozen.
Can I Buy Humira Online?
Humira requires a prescription to be dispensed by a pharmacy in the US. Because of this, the Humira pen is not available over the counter and one cannot simply buy Humira online. However, Push Health can connect people in need of a Humira pen prescription with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe Humira if appropriate to do so.
Humira - Side Effects
The Humira pen, like other medications, can cause side effects when used. Side effects from Humira use include respiratory infections, headache, rash and pain or redness at the site of the injection. People with a known hypersensitivity or allergy to Humira or any of its components should not use the medication pen. Humira and alcohol should not be used together. Questions about possible side effects related to Humira use should be discussed with a pharmacist and medical provider before use.
