HUMIRA may help you get moderate to severe ulcerative colitis (UC) under control, and keep it there.
In clinical studies, some people with UC achieved remission as soon as 8 weeks after starting treatment with HUMIRA. Individual results may vary.
HUMIRA is a prescription ulcerative colitis medicine used in adults to help get moderate to severe ulcerative colitis under control (induce remission) and keep it under control (sustain remission) when certain other medicines have not worked well enough. It is not known if HUMIRA is effective in people who stopped responding to or could not tolerate anti-TNF medicines.
HUMIRA is not right for everyone. Only your doctor can decide if HUMIRA is right for you. Your progress may be assessed at 8 weeks to decide if you should continue treatment.
