Why HUMIRA Was Right For Me Video Transcript

[PEDRO]
Well, my dermatologist and I were sitting down talking about different treatment options and we’ve already gone through a lot of different treatment options throughout my life, trying to figure out how to treat this. So, when I heard about HUMIRA and it’s approved for treating HS, I mean, that was something amazing. That was like someone answered my prayers.

[ADAH]
The first time I heard about HUMIRA, I was elated. However, my doctor said, “Hold on.” She wanted to make sure that it was right for me.

[PEDRO]
A lot of people out there, you know, they think that maybe the moderate HS isn’t treatable. But it is and HUMIRA is made for that.

[SOPHIA]
She reiterated that it was not a cure, but it was something to help manage my symptoms.

[PEDRO]
So I was learning was that it actually targets that TNF-alpha. All this chronic inflammation is due to this protein that’s being produced and it’s nothing that’s in my fault. It’s just part of my biology.

[SOPHIA]
I had heard more about it. I did a little bit more research.

[PEDRO]
A lot of people were getting positive results from HUMIRA. So…if it’s working for someone, I want to try it.

[SOPHIA]
I think HUMIRA over exceeded my expectations in that it did manage my symptoms, you know, within a short amount of time.

[PEDRO]
It was about 50% reduction that I had in abscesses and nodules in my body. So, it was pretty amazing to see.

[SOPHIA]
I didn’t have an increase in draining wounds. To me, it was huge.

[PEDRO]
That’s something that was worth it just for that.

[ADAH]
Speak with your dermatologist. Make sure that it's right for you.

[SOPHIA]
You guys can decide whether or not it’s the best course of action.

[ADAH]
And if someone tells you it can improve by 50%, why wouldn’t you want to try it?

Safety Considerations

HUMIRA can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. Serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. Before treatment, get tested for TB. Tell your doctor if you’ve been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you’ve had TB, hepatitis B, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. Don’t start HUMIRA if you have an infection.
