Humira (Adalimumab)

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Prescription Required

  • Product Details


    Humira is a type of medication called a monoclonal antibody. It is a prescription drug that can target specific proteins in the body that lead to autoimmune disease. The following conditions can be treated with Humira:

    • Ankylosing spondylitis
    • Crohn disease
    • Hidradenitis suppurativa
    • Plaque psoriasis
    • Psoriatic arthritis
    • Rheumatoid arthritis
    • Ulcerative colitis
    • Uveitis

    Humira works by binding to TNF-alpha, a protein free-floating in the blood. Normally, TNF-alpha activates many different immune system cells. For people with the above conditions, they have too much activity in their immune system. Humira helps to lower that activity back to normal.
