Adalimumab is an immunosuppressant, meaning that it suppresses the immune system when it gets out of control. This makes it useful for controlling a variety of non-contagious diseases: psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis (arthritis of the back), hidradenitis suppurativa (inflammation of sweat glands), uveitis (inflamed eyes), juvenile arthritis, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn’s disease (the last two conditions caused by inflammation of the large intestine).
Dose of Adalimumab
Adalimumab is self-administered by injection subcutaneously, meaning just under the skin. The dose depends upon which disease is being treated.
Common side effects:
- Pain, redness, itching, bruise at injection site
- Sinus infections
