Adalimumab injection is used to treat the symptoms and prevent the progression of active rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. It is used in children 2 years of age and older for juvenile idiopathic arthritis. This medicine is also used to treat psoriatic arthritis, which is a type of arthritis that causes pain and swelling in the joints along with patches of scaly skin on some areas of the body. Psoriatic arthritis usually occurs with a skin condition called psoriasis. Adalimumab may be used alone or in combination with medicines (eg, methotrexate or DMARDs).

Adalimumab injection is also used to treat the symptoms of active Crohn’s disease in adults and children 6 years of age and older who have not been helped by other medicines, including infliximab. It is also used to treat moderate to severe ulcerative colitis in adults and children 5 years of age and older who have been treated with other medicines (eg, azathioprine, corticosteroids, or 6-mercaptopurine) that did not work well.

Adalimumab injection may also be used to treat chronic plaque psoriasis, which is a skin disease with red patches and white scales that do not go away. It is also used to treat moderate to severe hidradenitis suppurativa, a chronic skin disease that has small, painful lumps under the skin in adults and children 12 years of age and older. This medicine is also used to treat non-infectious intermediate, posterior and panuveitis in adults and children 2 years of age and older.

How should this medicine be used?

Adalimumab injection products come as a solution (liquid) to inject subcutaneously (under the skin). Your doctor will tell you how often to use adalimumab products based on your condition and age. To help you remember to inject adalimumab injection products, mark the days you are scheduled to inject the drug on your calendar. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Use adalimumab injection exactly as directed. Do not use more or less of it or use it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

You will receive your first dose of adalimumab injection products in your doctor’s office. After that, you can inject adalimumab injection products yourself or have a friend or relative perform the injections. Before you use adalimumab injection products yourself the first time, read the written instructions that come with it. Ask your doctor or pharmacist to show you or the person who will be injecting the medication how to inject it.

Adalimumab injection products come in prefilled syringes, prefilled dosing pens and prefilled autoinjectors. Use each syringe, pen, or autoinjector only once and inject all the solution in the syringe, pen, or autoinjector. Even if there is still some solution left in the syringe, pen, or autoinjector after you inject, do not inject again. Dispose of used syringes, pens, and autoinjectors in a puncture-resistant container. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about how to dispose of the puncture-resistant container.

If you are using a prefilled syringe or a dosing pen that has been refrigerated, place the syringe or pen on a flat surface without removing the needle cap and allow it warm to room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before you are ready to inject the medication. Do not try to warm the medication by heating it in a microwave, placing it in hot water, or through any other method.

You can inject adalimumab injection anywhere on the front of your thighs or stomach except your navel and the area 2 inches (5 centimeters) around it. To reduce the chances of soreness or redness, use a different site for each injection. Give each injection at least 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) away from a spot that you have already used. Keep a list of the places where you have given injections so that you will not inject in these places again. Do not inject into an area where the skin is tender, bruised, red, or hard or where you have scars or stretch marks.

Always look at adalimumab injection solution before injecting it. Check that the expiration date has not passed and that the syringe, dosing pen, or autoinjector contains the correct amount of liquid. Check with the written instructions for use to find out what your adalimumab injection product solution should look like. Do not use a syringe, dosing pen, or autoinjector if it is expired, if it does not contain the correct amount of liquid, or if the liquid does not look like it is described in the written instructions for use.

Adalimumab injection products may help control your condition but will not cure it.
