Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis disease dosing information

Important: You must pay attention to your child’s starting dose—it is different than his or her maintenance dose and is a critical part of taking HUMIRA as prescribed. The doctor will take your child's weight into consideration when deciding the appropriate dose. Your child’s first injection must be given under the supervision of a health care professional. Remember to keep HUMIRA refrigerated in its original container until ready for use.

The injection experience

Although the injection might now feel different from prior HUMIRA injections, you should continue to follow the injection technique you learned from training. There is no change in how HUMIRA is stored.
