According to the official Humira site, "Studies have not been done to see how HUMIRA interacts with alcohol. If you have questions, talk to your doctor". Given that we simply don't know how Humira and alcohol in fact, it's probably best to not drink. You may want to talk to your doctor about it at your next appointment to get his/her take on the issue.
