Adalimumab side effects

The most commonly reported side effects due to adalimumab injection include infections (e.g. upper respiratory, sinusitis), headache, injection site reactions, and rash.

Warnings And Precautions
  • Do not start adalimumab during an active infection. In case an infection develops, monitor carefully, and stop adalimumab treatment if the infection becomes serious.
  • For patients who develop a systemic illness on adalimumab, consider empiric antifungal therapy for those who reside or travel to such regions where mycoses are endemic.
  • The safety of using live or live-attenuated vaccines in infants exposed to exemptia in utero is unspecified. Risks and benefits should be considered before vaccinating (live or live-attenuated) exposed infants. 
  • Therapy with adalimumab may result in the formation of autoantibodies and, rarely, in the development of a lupus-like syndrome. If a patient develops signs/symptoms suggestive of a lupus-like syndrome following therapy with adalimumab, discontinue treatment.
  • Cases of worsening congestive heart failure (CHF) and new-onset congestive heart failure have been reported with TNF blockers. Caution needs to be exercised when using exemptia 40 mg injection in patients who have heart failure and monitor them carefully.
  • Concurrent use of interleukin-1 antagonist and another TNF-blocker was related to a greater proportion of severe infections and neutropenia and no added benefit in comparison to TNF-blocker alone in patients with RA. Therefore, the combination of adalimumab and interleukin-1 antagonist is not recommended.
  • Patients should seek immediate medical help if they develop signs/symptoms suggestive of blood dyscrasias or infection (e.g., bruising, bleeding, persistent fever, pallor) while on Adalimumab. Consider discontinuation of Adalimumab therapy in patients with confirmed significant hematologic abnormalities.
  • Exercise caution in considering the administration of Adalimumab in patients with preexisting or recent-onset central or peripheral nervous system demyelinating disorders; discontinuation of Adalimumab should be considered in case any of these disorders develop.
Storage and Handling

Adalimumab must be refrigerated at 36 to 46°F (2 to 8°C). Do not freeze it. Do not use this medicine if it is frozen even if it has been thawed. Store in the original carton until the time of use in order to protect it from the light.

Drug Interactions of Adalimumab
  • Avoid the administration of live vaccines with Adalimumab.
  • Concomitant use of Adalimumab with other biologic DMARDS (anakinra and abatacept) or other TNF blockers is not recommended based upon the probable increased risk for infections and other potential pharmacological interactions.
  • Adalimumab has been evaluated in RA patients taking concomitant MTX or methotrexate. Although MTX reduced the apparent adalimumab clearance, the findings do not suggest the need for dose adjustment of either Adalimumab or MTX.
