Humira, generically known as Adalimumab, is a TNF Inhibitor meant to treat a variety of conditions, including Crohn’s Disease, moderate to sever psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and juvenille idiopathic arthritis. The functions, as well as the side effects, of this drug are similar to other TNF inhibitors such as Remicade.

Humira has been approved by the FDA in 2002 and is usually administered by an injection. The drug has no age restrictions and as a treatment for arthritis, it can be prescribed for children as young as four years of age.

The drug functions by combating the Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) in the body and as such combats the immune system of the patient; it is for this reason that the side effects of Humira are so extreme. Humira side effects include, but are certainly not limited to, the following:

  • Reactivation of Tuberculosis
  • Seizures
  • Psoriasis
  • Edema
  • Serious Liver Damage
  • Cancer
  • Cardiac Failure
  • Demyelinating Central Nervous System Disorders

While some of these conditions only occur to patients who already have certain other requisite conditions, the sheer diversity of these side effects is a serious cause for concern. For example, patients who have HIV/AIDs or have a history of another immune disease are at far greater risk of experiencing these side effects than average.

If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of taking Humira, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact our attorneys today. We, at the Law Offices of Gregory Krasovsky, believe that everyone who becomes seriously injured as a result of taking medication is rightly deserving of just recompense.
