I inject humira (adalimumab) in my stomach and sometimes i get a bruise, sometimes i don't. How do I stay bruise fee? Its not the pen its the syringe.

Try this.: When you bruise it is because you have injured a small vessel that leaks some blood before it finally clots off. There is no way to avoid hitting a vessel you can't even see but you could try holding some firm pressure against the injection site for a few minutes after injection. No guarantees. ...Read more

Why does it sting so much when i take humira (adalimumab)? It's not the needle, it's the drug itself when I am injecting it

Why does it sting so much when i take humira (adalimumab)? It's not the needle, it's the drug itself when I am injecting it

Humira (adalimumab) hurts: Humira (adalimumab) is a great drug in terms of its effectiveness for arthritis, uveitis, inflammatory bowel disease and other autoimmune but it hurts everyone who gets this medication. I have spoken to Humira (adalimumab) drug reps about this since i prescribe it to kids. There is something in the formulation that causes the stinging. Try warming med to body temp under your arm for 10 min before injecting. It helps some. ...Read more

Elevated ALT levels for a year and a half. All hepatitis tests negative. Can injecting humira (adalimumab) cause elevated levels? Can injection into muscle cause?

Elevated ALT levels for a year and a half. All hepatitis tests negative. Can injecting humira (adalimumab) cause elevated levels? Can injection into muscle cause?

Yes: Skeletal muscle does contain ast and alt and really heavy-duty intramuscular injections can raise these values. Timing the lab draws might help rule this in or out. I trust that screens for hemochromatosis and wilson's also showed you are not affected; the metabolic syndrome may also raise these. I'm glad you're taking a proactive role toward your health & i wish you luck. ...Read more
