Have been taking it for 2 years now (150MG a day) for Crohns Disease. First 3 months were tough, but worth it. Crohn's has been in remission since I started taking it. Side effects; little to no joint pain... thats it. I had bad back pain, knee pain, hip pain. All these pains are now at a minimum, I run 4 mile a day (something I have not been able to do since age 28).

I've had Crohn's for 6 yrs and taking drug for 6 yrs plus either Remicade, Humira and now Cimzia. Just increased from 150mg daily to 175mg daily. Side effect of increase seems to be tiredness, but better than Entocort or Prednisone.
