Moderate to Severe Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis Treatment
Could HUMIRA be right for your child?
Talk to your child's pediatric rheumatologist today to find out if HUMIRA may be
an option. If your child doesn't have a pediatric rheumatologist yet, ask your child's
doctor to help you find one.
A prescription medication taken by injection, HUMIRA can be injected by you or a
caregiver in the convenience of your own home. It usually needs to be used once
every 2 weeks.
Do not try to inject HUMIRA yourself until you have been shown the right way to
give the injections to your child. If your child's doctor decides that you may be
able to give the injections at home, you should receive training on the right way
to prepare and inject HUMIRA. The first injection should be given under the supervision
of a qualified healthcare professional.
One of the most common side effects with HUMIRA is injection site reactions such
as redness, rash, swelling, itching, or bruising. These symptoms usually will go
away within a few days.
HUMIRA is a prescription medicine used alone, with methotrexate, or with certain other medicines to reduce the signs and symptoms of moderate to severe polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis in children 4 years of age and older.
