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 prescription with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe Humira medication, including Humira pen / Humira injection, when 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 etanercept (Enbrel). Specifically, the Humira pen contains the drug adalimumab and 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 prescription medication is indicated in specific groups of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, Crohn's disease and plaque psoriasis. After use of the Humira injection, 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 medication requires refrigeration for storage and should generally 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 as Humira OTC (over the counter) and one cannot simply buy Humira online. However, Push Health can connect people in need of a Humira prescription with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe Humira medication, including the Humira injection / Humira pen, when appropriate to do so.
Humira - Side Effects
The Humira pen, like other medications, can cause side effects when used. Side effects from Humira pen 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 prescription medication or any of its components should not use the medication pen. The Humira injection and alcohol should not be used together. Questions about possible side effects related to Humira medication use should be discussed with a pharmacist and medical provider before use.
